Sempering at MUDEC

Within a varied contemporary panorama, the exhibition displays a selection of “design events” of different kinds and of different scales, organised into eight possible actions; eight metamorphoses capable of transforming materials or components into “artefacts”, into active elements of our daily lives and culture. The four categories formulated a hundred and fifty years ago by Gottfried Semper, and doubled in number to bring them up to date with contemporary conditions, are used as a grid to organise the complex structure of the artificial environment.

Sempering looks at architecture, landscapes and objects of the last decade crossing the established boundaries of every possible system of the arts, of every division in skills and sectors. Actions such as stacking heavy materials, connecting light structures, moulding soft materials, engraving fine casings, folding tin sheets, weaving threads, arranging tiles or blowing air can be seen as basic actions capable of inventing unexpected forms by the use of new technologies, but also as the testing of well-established “customs” or formal traditions in their response to new conditions.

The space is divided into nine sections, one of which is envisaged as the beginning and the end of the exhibition path, while the other eight, one for each identified “action”, freely offer their contents to the visitor, deliberately lacking a predetermined sequence. A variegated picture, where industry and crafts, advanced manufacturing processes and rediscovered manual skills, global innovation and local traditions come together in new combinations, distant more than ever from the ideals of universalism and mass production typical of Modernism.

Design | December 31, 2020

Beblau is a startup from Barcelona, Spain, that was born to enable organization and mobility working from anywhere.
