Museion Passage presents the project by the designer Martino Gamper, set to change the look and role of the ground floor of the Museion and open it up to the public and external events.
The opening of “Museion Passage” will also see the presentation of a project involving four European graphic design companies – H I T, Lupo&Burtscher, Metahaven and NORM – which created a series of posters for the ground floor of Museion on the theme of “The New Public”. Using the advertising medium of the poster and employing different techniques, the companies created personal interpretations of the theme of the new museum-going public.
Rein Wolfs (guest curator), Martino Gamper, Angelika Burtscher (Lupo&Burtscher), Daniel van der Velden (Metahaven) and Emanuela De Cecco (faculty of Arts and Design, Free University of Bolzano) will be taking part in a panel discussion exploring the meaning of the word “public” in the art world, the relation between art and design and the theme of communication with the public.
