“Things are still being produced and they are still being called “design” even when they should be called “art pompier” instead, or, more generously, “decorative art”. Things don’t have to be, they should only appear to be, thus corresponding to the infinite induced needs imposed by the domination of goods.” Enzo Mari, August 2009
“Che fare (What to do), the title of the exhibition, poses a clear question, although it does so without using the question mark, as we probably know there is no answer. The uncertainty on what the project will be and on the drift of society, on the future of many young people who are facing this profession/passion today, is evident enough and cannot be hidden away any more. ” Gabriele Pezzini, September 2009
