Exhibition & Programme
15 February - 2 July 2023
Reinterpretation is at the core of science and society. Design itself is a constant process of re-design, yet the ‘newness’ of innovation has mostly become automatically associated to the term technology. In academic discourse or theory, the interpretation of science or ideas (e.g., new paradigms) is even more important than rapid advances in engineering. Currently, the reinterpretation of history via cultural and colonial studies is re-framing our worldviews. Our notions of design and reinterpretation have also been challenged with considerations like appropriation and accessibility.
With the Re: Re:interpretation Exhibition & Programme coming to a close, we take a look back at events that helped the TU community re-examine interpretation in science, culture, and society. The programme featured diverse elements, including Rietveld redesigns by both renowned artists and students, workshops in scientific sonnets, film- and book- making, as well as discussions on relevant topics in the design landscape of today. We concluded with a rooftop screening of a documentary exploring reinterpretation and the creative process.
The ‘Space of Words: Form From Language’ exhibition remains on display in main hall of the Library until 2 July 2023.
