Kültür gemma!, VIENNA DESIGN WEEK, 1m2 Collective
Thanks to support from kültür gemma!, the VIENNA DESIGN WEEK was able to offer a new fellowship, the aim of which is to increase the awareness and appreciation of migrant positions in design. For Vienna Design Week 2022 the artist Natalia Gurova, who was selected from the many applicants, has addressed the context of the VIENNA DESIGN WEEK in detail and developed, together with the Dutch 1m2 Collective, an exhibition with constantly changing exhibits (everyday objects) that cover a wide range of positions.

LIQUID HOUSE revolves around issues of historic and cultural identity as well as aspects of the (in-) accessibility of resources and formal and informal structures and networks. In addition to this, the outreach program of the group exhibition offers workshops with people interested in design from a number of migrant communities: Participants will work with Natalia Gurova and other designers represented at the VIENNA DESIGN WEEK on furniture designs that express financial, institutional, social, or political restriction – as metaphors in the form of an object.
