Formafantasma will be participating in 'The Future Is Not What It Used to Be' - the 2nd Istanbul Design Biennal as curated by Zöe Ryan. The biennial will feature more than 50 projects by designers working in Australia, China, France, Japan, Mexico, the Netherlands, Turkey and the United States and each project questions the manifesto as a platform for situating ideas and pointing to new directions.
Arranged in five departments— Broadcast, Personal, Resource, Norms and Standards, and Civic Relations— the projects in the biennial deal with a broad array of concerns and present a surprising set of multiple possible futures. Formafantasma’s Open Manifesto, proposes new and inventive objects that appropriate and transform existing aesthetics.
