In occasion of Dutch Design Week 2018, Design Academy Eindhoven organized a new exhibition titled “Geo-Design”.
GEO—DESIGN approaches design from an investigative perspective, proposing a new format of research into the social, economic, geographical and geopolitical forces shaping the work of designers today. It traces the global flows of production and consumption, scanning online news portals, voices from global productive markets, stories from different geographies, interpreting them as starting points for design researches to be developed remotely or in the field.
The exhibition is on view through 11 November, 2018. If you are in Eindhoven, Netherlands, definitely check the show out.
