Objects – a talk with Mateusz Peringer and Elizaveta Barsegova

We would like to cordially invite you to a talk “Objects” with Mateusz Peringer and Elizaveta Barsegova. Both of them are curious and young designers and potters.

Mateusz rediscovers forgotten objects, places them in a fresh context. He builds and highlights the value of the object by relating to its past. Elizaveta travels the world to discover ancient pottery techniques, learns them, uses them in her daily studio practice, and teaches them to those who are ready to get her/his hands dirty.

And yes, we will speak about materials, plastic, creative cooperatives, socially engaged design, sustainable development, closed-circuit economy.

The conversation will take place in the framework of the exhibition “Futures of our Past“.

Presentation 29.05.2019, at 7pm
Drinks starts at 6pm
