MAL Syllabus Discussions: Design Heritage and Violence

What does design have to do with the destruction of cultural heritage? Is the intentional destruction of cultural heritage an act of design?

Melbourne Art Library invites you to the second of two reading workshops at MPavilion, where we will discuss the themes of design heritage and violence. The syllabus for the event, developed in collaboration with artist and architect Eduardo Kairuz, will address design heritage as something which projects a society into the future, and design violence as something which erases a society’s past.

Come with questions, ideas, and your own texts to share and contribute to the conversation.

We can’t wait to exchange perspectives.

Syllabus to be released late January.

This event has been developed as part of the M_Curators, an MPavilion program engaging young makers, doers and programmers. This initiative is made possible by our presenting partner Bloomberg Philanthropies.
