an actsWhat does Mariette suggest from us?
Under the slogan sunken world(s), invites us to view design as a radical practice, an instrument of change capable of connecting with the environment and the present. This is the title of a science fiction novel by J.J. Ballard that explores, by recreating a flooded world, the profound effects of time, space, and the coexistence of species to question human-centered design narratives and suggests alternative ways of experiencing contemporary aesthetics.
Reducing the boundaries between the various systems of creation, we will talk about symbiotic and fluid relationships, and, accordingly, about water, which is not only an essential component of our body, but also connects us with others. And with other facts, which bring us closer, from the point of view of the curators, to the context of Madrid: historical and also fictional.
