Thematic Day: Postgrowth
Sustainably inspired. Workshop for children and adults with Mariann Oppliger from Offcut Bern (from 2 yrs with accompaniment, from 6 yrs without accompaniment).
Offcut collects and sells used and leftover materials in material markets in five Swiss cities. Offcut stands for a playful approach to resource conservation and is a practical example of circular economy.
As a starting point for the workshop, there are “treasure chests” of material from Offcut Bern. After selecting and exploring the material contained, ideas will be developed, small projects realised, large projects will be planned or you can “just” play with the material, install it, fantasise about it – depending on your abilities, skills and interests.
Guided tour with Disnovation.org
Maria Roszkowska and Nicolas Maigret from Disnovation.org will guide you through their exhibition.
Book presentation: A Bestiary of the Anthropocene
Maria Roszkowska from Disnovation.org talks about the making of the book, conceived together with design researcher Nicolas Nova, which presents our post-natural society in 60 individual portraits ranging from antenna trees to cloud inoculation. The publication has just been published in German translation by Matthes & Seitz Berlin.
