Design Biennale Zurich 2021 – Third Design Biennale Zurich 2021

On a confrontation course: under the theme CLASH we let different values, traditions and expectations collide. Are analogue and digital in conflict? What design potential do cultural differences hold? How do expectation and reality meet? And at what point does the natural become artificial? Twelve installations address CLASH: upcycling, algorithmic design, digital animal worlds, data protection or virtual reality. The third Design Biennale Zurich presents design in all its diversity.

The public can also look forward to a varied supporting programme consisting of guided tours, designer talks and workshops for young and old.

Date: 12.8.-5.9.2021
Venue: Old Botanical Garden of the University of Zurich, Pelikanstrasse 40, 8001 Zurich

Background: The Design Biennale Zurich is a design event with a pop-up character and with the aim of sharpening the public perception of design, especially in Switzerland. The aim is to stimulate discourse and critical debate, to highlight design issues in the field of tension between culture and business, and to consolidate the cultural relevance of design. The venue is the Old Botanical Garden of the University of Zurich.
