The Politics of Design
Scenography for the upcoming exhibition in Z33 House for Contemporary Art, Hasselt.
The Politics of Design: Act 1 is about participation and political engagement in current design practices. The exhibition is presented in collaboration with the 15th edition of the international Participatory Design Conference, which is being organised this August in Hasselt and Genk. UHasselt – Faculty of Architecture, LUCA School of Arts, Z33 – House for Contemporary Art, the City of Hasselt and the City of Genk will present these 20 works in order to enter into the debate on public space and on the politics of design. This 'first act’ is the first exhibition in a longer trajectory that aims to start new collaborations in a local, regional and international context, and will result in a 'final act' in 2020: The Politics of Design Festival.
Curators: Jan Boelen and Mela Zuljevic
