DESIGN AND VIOLENCE, a new free exhibition at Science Gallery at Trinity College Dublin, hosted in co-production with The Museum of Modern Art, New York (MoMA), examines the myriad ways design intersects with violence, both through intent or through unintended consequences.
From beginnings as an online curatorial experiment at MoMA in 2013, DESIGN AND VIOLENCE now takes its turn as a physical show, opening at Science Gallery Dublin on October 14th. For the first time, visitors will be able to experience the show in person, exploring how art and technology is used to oppress as well as to resist, and considering the role of design in relation to our rights and bodies — both in Ireland and abroad.
