Breda Photo Festival

Breda / NL
– 21.10.2018
bredaphoto.nl 

Under the banner “To Infinity and Beyond” the Breda photography festival explores the forms of change and evolution that lead to continuous advances in technology and science. Over 55 national and international photographers have taken the opportunity to visually capture the dangers and dilemmas of technological progress and the challenges that we already experience in the present as well as those that we are likely to face in the future. New inventions inevitably have two sides to them: What if robots don’t merely simplify our lives, but instead create mass unemployment and financial and social inequality? What happens when machines and knowledge about genetic engineering fall into the wrong hands? If you can change the genes of a mosquito to make the malaria virus disappear, can you also manipulate them to carry a new virus? The Anthropogenic age, where man is the decisive factor in environmental change is simultaneously characterised by infinite possibility and great danger to the environment, humanity, and life itself.

4th Istanbul Design Biennial

Istanbul / TR
– 04.11.2018
aschoolofschools.iksv.org 

Since its foundation in 2012, the Istanbul Design Biennial has pursued the aim of bringing the creative industries and the academic world together to initiate dialogues, new ideas, solutions, and collaborations. For 2018, the theme of the fourth edition curated by Jan Boelen, Nadine Botha, and Vera Sacchetti is “A School of Schools”. Over a period of six weeks, one “school” each will be located at six locations in the city, and these will view and communicate design in different ways. These include, for example, the Currents School, dealing with the dissemination, hierarchy, and networking of information and topics; the Earth School, focusing on aspects such as nature, the relationship of mankind with its home planet and evolution; and the Unmaking School, looking at creativity, innovation, and future scenarios.

Biennale Interieur

Kortrijk / BE
18.10.2018 – 22.10.2018
interieur.be 

The first edition of the Biennale Interieur 50 years ago took place in the spirit of the 1968 movement. Back then, people wanted to rebel against the established idea of good design, break new ground, and involve the general public. Since then, the event has become a permanent fixture in the design landscape. In 2018, the event will be reduced to five days and more attention will be paid to the topics of business and entrepreneurship. Once again, the main venue is the Xpo congress centre. This year’s scenography was created by Studio Verter and is inspired by the basic functional principles of the urban space. The Biennale’s programme continues in the centre of Kortrijk, with a special venue being a former hospital. Again this year, The Floor Is Yours serves as a platform for young designers, new studios, collaborations, and universities.

20.10.2018 – 28.10.2018
ddw.nl 

Every October, the Dutch Design Week attracts over 300,000 visitors to Eindhoven – more people than the city has inhabitants. The future of the design discipline, innovation, experimentation, and collaboration are the primary focus of attention. The Dutch Design Week offers young and up-and-coming designers a platform to make new contacts and present their work to a wide audience. Throughout the city there are over 100 separate events, including exhibitions, award ceremonies, readings, networking events, debates, and parties, which invite visitors to explore the potential of design and creative processes. According to the organisers, more than 2,500 designers take part, making the event “the biggest design event in Northern Europe”.

Milano Design Film Festival

Anteo Palazzo del Cinema, Milan / IT
25.10.2018 – 28.10.2018
milanodesignfilmfestival.com 

For the past six years every autumn, the Milano Design Film Festival has transformed the Anteo Palazzo del Cinema in the heart of Milan into a four-day meeting place for enthusiasts of architecture and design. During this time, around 50 screenings provide an insight into the current cinematic examination of this topic. The aim is to provide a stage for films that are not included in the programmes of major cinemas. This year, the festival’s main theme is “Fast-Changing”. The conflict between future vision and history, technology and tradition, digitisation and materiality is considered, culminating in the questions: “What to keep, what to change, how to recycle, what to destroy?”

Potentiale

Feldkirch / AT
09.11.2018 – 11.11.2018
potentiale.at 

Organised previously as a three-week series of events, this year’s Potentiale will be compacted to one intensive weekend. As a mixture of fair and festival, the organisers want to offer visitors more than just an exhibition of products. As a result, a vintage market, various workshops, exhibitions, and events complement the classic design fair, converting and repurposing empty spaces. This offer is not only intended to appeal to a broad public, but also to make the urban area of Feldkirch accessible in a new way. In the future, Potentiale’s activities will extend throughout the whole year and will also reach beyond the festival as a platform that is intended to link people, produce new impulses, and promote innovative projects.

Raumwelten 2018

Ludwigsburg, Stuttgart / DE
14.11.2018 – 16.11.2018
raum-welten.com 

Central to the event called Raumwelten is the staging of space. The event offers a diverse programme and platform for designers, architects, scenographer entrepreneurs, marketing experts, and digital artists. This year’s motto is “Out of Senses!”, and refers to the holistic experience of spaces that use sound, light, materiality, smell, moving images, and immersive media. A novelty this year is the VR day on 17 November 2018, where lectures and installations will highlight the possibilities that using virtual and augmented reality can create.

Us by Night

Parkloods Park Spoor Noord, Antwerp / BE
22.11.2018 – 24.11.2018
usbynight.be 

Us by Night is not a classic design festival, but rather a combination of nightlife and the creative scene. For the third time in the event’s history, the exhibition hall in Antwerp is transformed into a “visual amusement park” and is therefore not only aimed at the creative industries, but also at a general audience interested in culture. At the events all taking place in the evening (admission from 4 pm), visitors can expect to find art installations, performances, a night market inspired by the Brooklyn Night Bazaar, and a variety of lectures, often in conjunction with major fashion and streetwear labels such as Adidas, Nike, and Puma. Visitors can also enjoy table tennis or arcade games, be tattooed or eat at one of the many street-food stands.
