Design without borders
by Austrian, Czech, Danish, Dutch, German, Hungarian, Italian, Polish, Portuguese, Romanian, Slovak, Spanish and Swiss furniture, textile, object and jewellery designers.
Design Without Borders (DWB), one of the region’s most significant independent all-arts exhibitions and event series, showcases works of designers, furniture, textile and jewellery designers and artists working in other visual fields. Each year circa 150 designers from more than 10 countries get the opportunity to present their work to the audience in this 16-year-old project. The exhibition is augmented by a rich selection of sister-arts events.
In October 2020 the exhibition was opened in Budapest. In 2021 it would have also gone to Bratislava and Vienna; however, these got cancelled due to the pandemic. Instead, an innovative all-arts DWB vlog, premiering on 7 May, presented the works of the 154 artists from 14 countries in short 30-35 second videos. At the same time there was an online meeting in the FUGA BUDAPEST CENTER OF ARCHITECTURE, alongside Szilvia Szigeti’s textile collection “Futuristic”, Rita Góbi’s dance etude and a contemporary classical music concert by Róza Radnóti.
Curators: Szigeti Szilvia and Radnóti Tamás
