Lotta Agaton Normally I never post my own pictures but it has almost become tradition to make a summary from Milan Design Week here on the blog with my own snapshots..so here we go again. 2014 Milan Design Week from my Iphone starting off with wine lunch in the sun at 10 Corso Como. This year they had two exhibitions at 10 Corso Como, one with the fantastic artist Kris Ruhs who is the brain behind their amazing decoration and graphic design and upstairs they showed photographer Charlotte Perriand. Galleria Vittorio Emanuele and Rosanna Orlandis private office, amazing as always.. Spazio Rosanna Orlandi showed Embrodery on Eames Aluminium chair and a Nica Zupanc exhibition. Nendo did a great exhibition in collaboration with COS, upstairs he showed a fantastic new store concept and downstairs he was showing his selected works in miniatures. I always like when there is some kind of interaction on the exhibitions.
About The ____________ Manifesto I choose the ________ Manifesto by Michael Betancourt, written in 1996, because I felt close to the ambiguity in his declaration about art. My personal belief in art and design is ever changing, fluid, and not-concrete. I also believe that defining art cannot be done by one person, as it proves to be different for everyone across varying dimensions. In this manifesto, Betancourt does an amazing job at implying this in an interactive platform. What is art? By what basis do we define, judge, and create it?

PINA’S WORDS OF WISDOM “I’m not so interested in... “I’m not so interested in how they move as in what moves them.” ― Pina Bausch“To understand what I am saying, you have to believe that dance is something other than technique. We forget where the movements come from. They are born from life. When you create a new work, the point of departure must be contemporary life — not existing forms of dance The Pirate Press: No Google Manifesto Creator: Alex Dearmond, Graphic Designer, Publisher and Assistant Professor of Graphic Design at the University of Wisconsin – Stout.
