Curator Aric Chen and designer Thomas Thwaites discuss their work in the second part of our Virtual Design Festival collaboration with The World Around, which also features short films by Kalyanee Mam and Apichatpong Weerasthakul.
The World Around’s Earth Day 2020 symposium, which we are broadcasting today as part of Virtual Design Festival, features talks, presentations, films and essays by over twenty visionaries at the forefront of ecological design.
The second session starts with a conversation between Malika Leiper and filmmaker Mam, who will screen her short film Lost World. Set in Cambodia, it tells the story of land being sold and exported from under her feet.
This is followed by a conversation between Mariana Pestana, curator of the 2020 Istanbul Design Biennial, and Alessandra Covini and Giovanni Bellotti of Rotterdam-based Studio Ossidiana, who will discuss their work
