Takes place during MOCAK Collection

Artists seek opportunities to practise art everywhere they can. They have found them, amongst others, in the field of architecture and design – disciplines traditionally governed by function. The designer’s creative inspiration follows the principle of utility. Contemporary artists employ the relationship between imagination and function in quite a contrary way. With some exceptions, they completely reject the practical function, instead dwelling on its symbolism. Objects appear deceptively practical, yet simultaneously do not yield themselves to practical use. This results in a conceptual play.
