RE F O R M MMXX
Thank you for your submissions to REFORM Design Biennale 2020.
All entries are currently under review.
WITH THIS YEAR’S THEME ‘APPLIED EXPERIMENTS’
RE F O R M DESIGN BIENNALE 2020 AIMS TO EXPLORE HOW CREATIVE EXPERIMENTS CAN BE CARRIED OUT OUTSIDE THE CONVENTIONAL EXHIBITION FORMAT. HOW MIGHT OPEN ENDED EXPLORATIONS AND CRITICAL QUESTIONS MOVE SOCIETY, CITIZENS, COMPANIES, EDUCATIONAL INSTITUTIONS, ORGANISATIONS AND MORE?
REFORM is the process of change. A change of form. A change of mindset. A change of direction. We question what we already know and perceive as right. REFORM is a common ground and a movement for a new generation of creative practitioners who want to challenge traditional ways of activating objects, ideas and processes.
REFORM continually seeks to challenge traditional formats, and in 2020 we want to channel the experiment of reform into reality and into specific contexts. REFORM Design Biennale 2020 will not revolve around an exhibition. This year’s open call encourages applications outside the conventional exhibition format that bring visions and practices into public space, to the consumers, to people. REFORM and this year’s jury are looking for projects that can reform in a context – be it a location, a specific group of people, a certain conscience or at a media.
We expect to shortlist five to ten projects, which will be followed closely and further developed by REFORM, including feedback and discussion. The goal is to implement the projects during 2020 and to present the progress of the shortlisted projects in a publication and at a public event by the end of the year.
DESIGNERS, ARCHITECTS, CRAFTSMEN, ARTISTS AND TALENTED STUDENTS COULD APPLY FOR RE F O R M. DEADLINE FOR SUBMISSIONS WAS MARCH 1, 2020.
