Ljubljana preparing for the 23rd Biennial of Design

From the first biennial in 1964 to today, the Biennial of Design has presented 22 exhibitions that survey the best in international design – and along with co-designing contemporary trends in international design, have become an inseparable part of the identity of the Slovenian capital. Until 30 March, a Call for Entries is underway and Ljubljana will host the event at the Museum of Architecture and Design from 27 September and 22 November 2012.

Ljubljana preparing for the 23rd Biennial of Design

From the first biennial in 1964 to today, the Biennial of Design has presented 22 exhibitions that survey the best in international design – and along with co-designing contemporary trends in international design, have become an inseparable part of the identity of the Slovenian capital. Until 30 March, a Call for Entries is underway and Ljubljana will host the event at the Museum of Architecture and Design from 27 September and 22 November 2012.

The Biennial of Design is one of the few major international design exhibitions with a tradition of more than 48 years that presents a carefully chosen selection of contemporary trends in international design. Adopting the theme Design Relations, the BIO 23 exhibition will highlight fresh ideas and explore how design relates to the social, the sustainable, and the cultural, while displaying crossovers between culture and commerce, crafts and industry.

The curators of this year’s exciting 23rd edition of BIO are Margo Konings and Margriet Vollenberg of Organisation in Design. The curators will select the works to be exhibited from the entries received.

Established and emerging young designers, commissioners, manufacturers, tutors, students, design labels, creative collectives, cultural institutions and others are invited to apply for the BIO 23 exhibition; the deadline for entries is 30 March 2012.
