CALL FOR APPLICATIONS TO THE BIENNIAL OF DESIGN BIO 50
In 2014, the Biennial of Design (BIO), organized by the Museum of Architecture and Design, reinvents itself and launches an ambitious call for applications. Entering the realm of collaboration, where design is a tool to rethink everyday life, the Biennial is looking for individuals to shape possible futures for design. BIO is looking for team members with diverse backgrounds and a multidisciplinary approach, students and professionals alike, integrating and contributing to the outcome of each group that will tackle themes of everyday life. Deadline for applications is 12 January 2014.
On its 50th anniversary, the 24th Biennial of Design in Ljubljana curated by Belgian critic and curator Jan Boelen builds on the event’s tradition and history, advancing into an experimental, collaborative territory. From 18 September to 7 December 2014 in Ljubljana, BIO 50 will present the outcomes of each team’s work in an exhibition, and projects will be published in an accompanying catalogue. An international jury will grant an Award for Best Collaboration, and a compelling series of events will enrich the Biennial’s core program and serve to explore ways in which collaborations can continue beyond the event.
