10th October, 08.00-20.00
City library

The exhibition MAOW 2019 / DESIGN EXCAVATIONS is hosting an ongoing and extensive program of different set-ups and activations that will constantly rearrange the space over the course of five days. This is the schedule for Thursday 10th:



08:00-20:00 Choreography around a table

An exploratory project highlighting the human interplay taking place around a table. Here the table becomes a mediator, influencing the choreography, rhythm and interaction between the people gathered around it. As new rules around behaviour and movement occur, the situation becomes a shared experience among the participants.

The mediating table and a short film will be exhibited during the day.

Welcome to interact with the concepts and narratives collected by Shereen El Khateeb in her project Mixed Identities. A project that explores concepts such as citizenship, national identity, and ethnicity – and how these concepts are both supported and challenged by the growing number of people with mixed heritage. By collecting and sharing personal narratives that oppose the stereotypical categorization of everyday understanding, Shereen El Khateeb aims to contribute with insights that raise the public awareness of the issue and is helpful for people of mixed heritage.

Event:  Legumes Lab

Welcome to the Legumes Lab workshop! Legumes Lab is a workshop were participants are invited to approach various kinds of legumes with senses, in order to discover other aspects than usual. The workshop will challenge you to adopt a more curious, listening and open-minded attitude on the things that surround us in daily life.

17:30-19:00 Tactile Interaction I

Human Centered Design is supposed to be a practice working for and with people. Co-creative approaches involving multiple perspectives, interest groups and individuals are common options chosen. So, what are the experiences created in these workshop settings? How do we design for the in-between – the relational aspects?

This is an invitation to (re)consider aspects of touch and tactility for day to day workshop design to make connections and stay connected to tactual and tacit ways of interacting and knowing.
