Confirmation of attendance: bds@lodzkie.pl ABOUT THE EXHIBITION Inclusive, restorative or allocentric design are issues increasingly recognized by designers as the right course of action and an alternative to the exhausted and harmful anthropocentric formula. With this in mind, we are looking for examples of going beyond our own needs, our own ego and, above all, beyond the aesthetics that appropriates the name of design. Let’s consider „what if?” and let a culture of deeper reflection preceding action become our mission. Diagnosis of the biggest ecosystem problems refers to keywords such as; plastic, co2, water, drought, degradation, waste or excessive consumption, which are closely related and coupled. However, social inequalities, which are still underestimated, are coming to the fore and are to be the greatest threat to human activity in the future. It is our unique sensitivity, perceptiveness, ability to analyze and abstract, that is, the features that allow us to create and design, determine our potential thanks to which we can propose visions of the future alternative to the analyses of economists or scientists, perhaps more communicative and of the greater impact. Can a designer/an artist perform his role in society without producing objects? And what object can add real value to our life and the life of our planet?
