BIO 26 - Designathon Open Call

BIO 26: Designathon Open Call

by Ana Kuntarič

The Museum of Architecture and Design has launched an open call for participation for the 26th Biennial of Design, BIO. BIO 26 will take on one of the greatest challenges of our time: 'Information.'

Concerned with the widespread crisis in information, BIO 26 seeks to harvest the best ideas that explore ways to creatively take charge and react to it, as well as to propose experiments and present alternatives to the ways we currently deal with information and knowledge.

The open call invites designers, architects, scientists, artists, communicators, educational professionals, sociologists, and the general public on a sprint journey to revisit the fundamental structures of knowledge production and transmission in society, going back to the Enlightenment.

Selected participants will explore real challenges posed by the BIO 26 curatorial team together with a partnering museum, library, university, botanical garden, and retirement home, as well as news and media organization to rethink their roles in the twenty-first century.

The deadline for applications is April 21, 2019.
