Emerging Talents from the Department Design, Zurich University of the Arts, a project promoting young-and-upcoming talent, will take part in Forward Festival Zurich at KOSMOS. These projects explore the boundaries of contemporary design creation, and the exhibits probe into new technologies, questions of interactivity and participation, radical forms of communication and positions concerning the sustainability of design. All projects are characterized by a spirit of innovation and experimentation, a thirst for research, visual originality and cultural entrepreneurship. The talks will provide insights into the design processes.
We hope to see you at Living Room Stage at KOSMOS, 1 June, 2018 at 9:00 pm.
