There Is Always a Design Emergency - Paola Antonelli Masterclass at MOME

„Design is about life. And there’s no moment when there’s no emergency, violence, or health crisis”, says Senior Curator of MoMA Paola Antonelli, who has been exploring the role of design in the context of global challenges and everyday life over the years.

The talk is is based on Antonelli’s book Design Emergency co-authored with design critic Alice Rawsthorn during the pandemic following the launch of their Instagram Live series of the same name. The novel approach it heralded will be presented to the Hungarian public on the World Industrial Design Day on 29 June at Antonelli’s master class entitled There Is Always a Design Emergency. 
Antonelli’s talk will explore the evolving role of designers responding to the world’s most pressing issues, as well as the impact of their oeuvre and mindset on the whole, illustrated with good practices from all over the world.  

Participation requires registration. 

The event is part of the Global Voices at MOME initiative, supported by the MOME Foundation.
