One and a half months before the opening of the XXII Triennale, The Museum of Modern Art will host the second Broken Nature symposium, exploring the notion of restorative design. Drawing on architecture, urban planning, geopolitics, linguistics, and other overlapping fields of research, the symposium traces design’s potential to repair humans’ collapsing bonds with nature, and offers a dynamic exchange of opinions through individual presentations, panel conversations, a debate, and video contributions.
Confirmed speakers include, in alphabetical order: Maurice Cox, Teddy Cruz, Heather Davis, Karthik Dinakar, Susannah Drake, Fonna Forman, Ursula K. Heise, Antonia Juhasz, Neri Oxman, Cara Smyth, and Dori Tunstall. Paola Antonelli and Stefano Boeri (La Triennale’s president) will introduce the afternoon.
This symposium is part of the public program organized by the curatorial team to provoke a lively discussion around Broken Nature’s central themes. Together with the digital platform, brokennature.org, these public events intend to bare the research process, and draw on the audience’s expertise and suggestions to further enhance the organization of the exhibition, driving curatorial mechanisms to be more participatory.
