Design Museum Dharavi at the XXII Triennale di Milano

Design Museum Dharavi will take part in the XXII Triennale di Milano, Broken Nature: Design Takes on Human Survival. The exhibition highlights the concept of restorative design and studies the state of the threads that connect humans to their natural environments––some frayed, others altogether severed.

The exhibition is curated by MoMA senior curator of architecture and design Paola Antonelli and promises to be the most significant design exhibit of the year. By turning its attention to human existence and persistence, the XXII Triennale will promote the importance of creative practices in surveying our species’ bonds with the complex systems in the world, and designing reparations when necessary, through objects, concepts, and new systems.

Design Museum Dharavi engages with local makers in new collaborations, exploring their creativity and designing new items together for public exhibitions. The showcased objects, proposals, strategies and models reflect the talent of local makers, craftsmen, designers, contractors and other professionals operating within Dharavi, and aim to open new creative directions and scenarios. The goal of such collaborative process is portraying local identities and their communities in surprising and original ways, encouraging a new perception and understanding about this home-grown neighbourhood.

Broken Nature will run from March 1 to September 1, 2019.
