WITHIN THE FRAMEWORK OF DESIGN CITY LUXEMBOURG

The objects gathered together for the exhibition defy pre-established categories such as sculpture, product, furniture, etc. They intrigue us, leaving us perplexed and, above all, incite great freedom in terms of apprehending and appreciating them. These barely-recognisable and stimulating things go beyond the usual “art or design?” or “art and design?” formulas, rendering the question of the status of objects obsolete and aiming to explore the state of things today through their incongruous, astonishing or falsely recognizable forms.

Making Africa – A Continent of Contemporary Design showcases works from a diverse range of creative fields: object and furniture design, graphic arts, illustration, fashion, architecture, urban planning, art, craft, film, photography, digital and analogue approaches. These works deliberately occupy the grey area between the disciplines, and yet they provide concrete answers to the question of what twenty-first century design can and should achieve. For example, they recognize new possibilities in the use of material; they are oriented to the process rather than the result and make bold statements about the future.
