Open Call BIO 26 – Common Knowledge: Associated Projects

22. July, 2019

The Museum of Architecture and Design, organizer of the 26th Biennial of Design (BIO 26) in Ljubljana, is launching an open call for entries for BIO 26 – Common Knowledge: ASSOCIATED PROJECTS, a program of parallel events that aims to give a broader view of issues addressed in COMMON KNOWLEDGE, a core biennial exhibition curated by Austrian design curator and cultural producer Thomas Geisler together with assistant curator Aline Lara Rezende

The 26th Biennial of Design, BIO 26 – Common Knowledge, focuses on interrelations between the multidimensional information crisis and citizenship, and explores the role and potential of contemporary design in the shaping of knowledge and truth, and in the recalibration of our Infosphere. Working with content, structures, and stakeholders, the 26th Biennial of Design in Ljubljana hopes to find ways, unearth projects, and explore concepts and systems that can serve to turn this disruptive chaos in and of information into creative knowledge clusters. The notion of “common knowledge” relates and refers to what people know; more broadly, if refers to what people think and how they structure their ideas, feelings, and beliefs. Furthermore, the term “common knowledge” carries a sense of communal or shared knowledge.
Local and international designers, curators, creatives, educational institutions and cultural organizations are invited to take part in the ASSOCIATED PROJECTS program, which will accompany the biennial with a diverse program of events, exhibitions, lectures and other projects.

Deadline for applications: 
September 15th 2019
