Saturday 30 September 1:00pm
A talk about design and social and cultural meanings. This talk will focus on do-it-yourself practices as a means of bypassing the authority of design. It shall examine the methods and processes used by amateur designers and makers to consider these actions social or cultural meanings.
Part of the Thinking Living Dwelling Exhibition: Presented at The Dock in collaboration with The Green Door Festival.
This exhibition is designed to underpin and celebrate the extraordinary achievements of Leitrim’s Green Door Festival. The title makes reference to Martin Heidegger’s seminal text “Building dwelling, thinking” in which he challenges us to think about what it is to dwell and what it means to build. Over the course of the exhibition there will be an associated programme of talks, meetings, and screenings, facilitating creative discussions between homeowners, architects, makers and artists.
The exhibition continues until Saturday 14th October.
This is a free talk, booking required to reserve seating
