Curated by Austrian design curator and cultural producer, Thomas Geisler — with Aline Lara Rezende, BIO 26 – Common Knowledge will explore the role and potential of contemporary design in the shape of knowledge and truth from November 14, 2019 to February 9, 2020.

This year, BIO 26 will commission six projects for the biennial through a three-day intensive, hands-on, sprint event, where non-designers and designers alike will collaborate on design challenges.

According to the Biennial Foundation, selected participants will explore challenges posed by the BIO 26 team with a partnering museum, library, university, botanical garden, retirement home, as well as news and media organization to rethink their roles in the 21st century.

Local and international designers, creatives, educational institutions and cultural organizations are also invited to take part in the ASSOCIATED PROJECTS program, which will accompany the biennial with events, exhibitions, and lectures.

The ASSOCIATED PROJECTS program features individual or group presentations, new or established projects, exhibitions and events relating to activities in the field of design, but more specifically, to the Biennial’s themes of information crisis and communal knowledge.

The 26th Biennial of Design exhibition is looking for projects that intersect art, culture, experiment, market and entrepreneurship.

The BIO 26 and MAO committee, as well as members of Centre for Creativity, will choose the projects which will be shown as part of BIO 26 – Common Knowledge: Associated projects.
