From January 22, 2021 until July 25, 2021
The internationally acclaimed designer and artist Jerszy Seymour joins forces with Amica Dall of the London-based architecture collective Assemble and Emanuele Braga of Macao, the artist and activist group from Milan, to create a fantastic and humorous world in the Museum für Kunst und Gewerbe Hamburg (MK&G). Life on Planet Orsimanirana follows the concept of the “Non-Gesamt Gesamtkunstwerk,” a decentralised generative form of world-building. International and local collectives, activists, artists, designers and visitors are invited to simply be there, enjoy, take part in discussions and workshops, build ideas, share them as radio programmes, jam funky tunes, get comfortable with the struggle and demand the world they want to live in. With this exhibition the MK&G continues to explore new approaches to opening the museum for participation and discourse. Oscillating between exhibition, radio station, workshop and collective performance space, it is created for those who would like to take a more active role in the museum and use the power of collective imagination to think about new paths and possible answers to the pressing questions of our present.
