The soul of RECIPROCITY is eminently polyphonic. The main program, developed by internationally renowned curators, will include a meeting point, four exhibitions and an event dedicated to documentary films on social innovation. But there’s much more… Five exhibitions and events will be organized around the main program and its theme by guest institutions, all active in the field of design in Belgium. Let’s discover these guest exhibitions.
Design on Track is a co-organization by Spi, Wallonie Design and Job’in Design. This exhibition brings together a selection of products / services from different sectors design in Wallonia. The exhibition will inaugurate the cycle of events of the Station Design Wallonia, the new center entirely dedicated to design and related economy in the Walloon Region of Belgium. A Touch of Steel is a traveling exhibition that draws its content from the 2014 Steel Prize competition organised by the German Kolloquium Nordrhein Westfalen together with the Jewellery Design, Gold & Silversmith department of the Royal Academy of Fine Arts Antwerp. Showcasing 22 students’ work, who impressed with refreshing and pioneering ways of handling steel, it will also feature the contributions of 27 German and Belgian designers and artists. The presentation will be held at the Grand Curtius. Launched in September 2014 at the Design Vlaanderen gallery, the exhibition MÖBEL, for the Triennale, is based in ESA Saint-Luc Liège and shows a collection of furniture designed by recognised designers, and made in the RessourceLab studio by those working in the social economy. MAD In Situ is the lab for social innovation and social design of MAD Brussels. In the meeting point of RECIPROCITY 2015, the center will present projects developed in collaboration with designers-in-residence, engaged in a dynamic creative process based on the confrontation with the issues of local residents. Last but not least, Creative Jam, organized by Design Innovation, is a workshop / exhibition to rethink meals and the way distribution systems are organised in the framework of a social service. Participants will create new recipes based on products from short circuits, create new settings for their uses, and will prototype these new proposals. The results of this creative marathon will be offered to the visitors during a festive tasting.
