Adhocracy

SolarSinter, a printer that takes sun and sand and converts to glass by Markus Kayser

The exhibition “Adhocracy” will be open at New Museum. It brings together an international group of designers, practitioners, networks, and platforms responding to epochal changes and questioning the very definition of design.

The exhibition explores a new direction in contemporary design through twenty-five projects—presented through artifacts, objects, and films. In the place of standardized, industrialized perfection, the exhibition embraces imperfection as evidence of an emerging force of identity, individuality, and nonlinearity in design. As design welcomes the new technologies of the information age, the field itself is being reshaped. Some have built their practice around the collaborative ideology of the open source movement; others explore the opportunities opened up by new low-cost fabrication technologies. Some are exploring new economic models of production; others are challenging the established hierarchies between designers and end-users.
