Vienna Design Week X Design Campus: Room for Change


Room for Change is an invitation to change perspective, question harmful agri-cultural practices and look at plants as allies for militant and poetic design scenarios. Spanning material experimentations, fashion items, products, performances, as well as videos and photos, the installation highlights the design and narrative potential of plants and reveals stories of interdependence, empowerment, resilience, but also exploitation, overconsumption and colonisation. The featured works were produced by the participants of The School of Phyto-centred Design, the 2023 summer programme curated by d-o-t-s for the Design Campus at Pillnitz Palace & Park (Dresden, Germany).
