Fragilitas is an exhibition divided in three parts, each one dealt with by a different curator. The aim is to encourage reflection on the way design can create new experiences and transform challenges into opportunities. Fragility comes in many ways and no one is immune, from the experiences of ageing, sickness or disability, to the precariousness, poverty and struggles faced by those who are forced to migrate. Fragilitas does not want to regard these human fragilities as insurmountable facts of life but as a kind of opportunity. The exhibition shows that design enables. Through its creativity, approaches and methods, it can transform frailties into strengths, adapting, improving and refining the objects and services around us. The scenography is the work of DesignWithGenius, a multidisciplinary design studio from Liège, and brings coherence between the different spaces and enhances the specifics of the subject.

FABRICA: Confessions

Under the artistic direction of Oliviero Toscani, designers, architects, graphic artists, photographers and video-makers from Fabrica created a ‘portrait’ of themselves — starting from an introspective act and their fragility — which expresses their creative talent through different media. Have you ever really looked at yourself in the mirror? What do you really think about yourself? Have you ever doubted your talent, your opportunities and your possibilities? Have you ever been frank about your weaknesses? What would you like to know about yourself, that you never had the courage to ask? Confessions is a candid dialogue. The ‘confessions’ are the self-portraits of the Fabrica project's team members: freestyle, and taking the form of objects, images, videos, or any other form of expression that demonstrates the team members' authenticity and illustrating their unique vision of themselves.

Curator: Oliviero Toscani
