Museum of Vibrant Matter: exhibition extension

The exhibition 'Museum of Vibrant Matter', one of the axes of the second edition of the Porto Design Biennale, remains at Casa do Design until October 3rd.

The exhibition Museum of Vibrant Matter, one of the major events of Porto Design Biennale 2021, curated by Alastair Fuad-Luke, asks us to pay attention and attune to our local biological, technical and hybrid materialities as an act of care towards ourselves, other living things, our soils, water and geology. Encourages us to adopt radical, yet humble, attitudes beyond anthropo-supremacy so we can collectively design preferable material futures that regenerate us, our communities and our terrestrial/aquatic/marine habitats. The exhibition can now be visited until October 3rd, a temporal extension that also covers the Archive of Vibrant Matter, the digital platform that invites all people to submit materials, living organisms and transformative practices to this archive. By collectively observing and archiving artefacts and materials, we intend to create a new intimacy and understanding with what surrounds us on a daily basis. Visit the digital archive.
