The 1st edition of Porto Design Biennale intends to think the new Millennium and the role of design in a framework of change. A unique event in Portugal, which is the result of a partnership between the Porto City Council and the Matosinhos City Council and organized by esad—idea, Research in Design and Art, Porto Design Biennale will take place in September of 2019.
Confronting the tensions of the new millennium, the first edition of Porto Design seeks to analyse the current disciplinary configuration of design. The reflection on the one hand takes into account the historical perspective and tension relationships, between remoteness and closeness, contemporary design and the model of modern design that was in effect until the end of the Millennium; on the other hand, it is important to identify and evaluate the forms and functions of design produced in the first two decades of the current millennium, as well as to reflect on the social efficiency of design and the new connections that arise from the economic, technological, political, cultural and environmental situations.
Stay up to date with the exciting series of workshops.
