Commissioned by Depot Basel
2015, exhibition identity
Forum for an Attitude is an exhibition and series of forums developed by Depot Basel in collaboration with Vitra Design Museum in Basel and Weil Am Rhein. “Forum für eine Haltung” questions the ambition of designers today? Why did they become designers? What kind of social influence do they hope to achieve? What image of design is conveyed to society? And how can an attitude be expressed in design? The exhibition considers these questions and presents answers and positions on the topic authored by various designers and the public. The exhibition describes design as a versatile discipline. Works are shown by 24 contemporary designers embarking on their professional career. Five multi-day forums at Depot Basel, each dedicated to a different topic, offer a platform for amicable exchange among practitioners, thinkers and amateurs. The titles of the events are Solidarity, Visibility, Intuition, Knowledge and Tools. In May of 2016, “Forum Postaw” moves to the BWA Design Gallery in Wroclaw, Poland.
