BIO 50 launches, bringing more than 120 multidisciplinary participants to Ljubljana
Chief curator: Jan Boelen, Z33
Co-curators: Cvetka Požar, Maja Vardjan, MAO
In an unprecedented effort, more than 120 multidisciplinary participants from all over the world came together on 13 and 14 February for the kick-off of BIO 50, the 24th Biennial of Design in Ljubljana. The kick-off marked the beginning of a six-month collaborative process in which eleven teams will devise possible futures for design. At the Museum of Architecture and Design (MAO), curator Jan Boelen launched BIO 50 by referencing artist Francis Alÿs’ seminal 2002 work When Faith Moves Mountains as a metaphor for the exceptional scale of the collaborative process that brings together all participants in the Biennial who were selected by the curator, co-curators Maja Vardjan and Cvetka Požar and the mentors of each themes.
