Voices from the Atelier

Voices from the Atelier

Podcast series

Dignity, playfulness, truth, dream, memory and language are the keywords in this podcast series led by André Cruz during the Porto Design Biennale.

The Voices From the Atelier podcast series is a set of polyhedral conversations with designers and people whose lives have been dedicated to designing worlds. 

Taking the Porto Design Biennale theme of Alter-Realities as a departing point, André Cruz will enter designers’ studios to understand how, in the kaleidoscopic contexts of the present, different responses to challenging questions are being drawn. The scope of practices put forward in the 2021 biennale reveals the six sub-themes, one per episode: Play, Truth, Dignity, Dream, Memory and Language.

Each episode thus becomes a space of exchange with our guests, and of reaction to the local-to-global conditions that they are confronted with, as are many other designers.

 

Episode #1 - Truth

This first episode is dedicated to Truth. What is truth? How many truths are possible? How many coexist in a single space at the same time? Does it make sense to establish a necessary link between beauty and truth? To talk about these and other issues, Voices from the Atelier welcomes researcher, director and artist Susan Schuppli and Matteo Moretti, designer, lecturer and co-founder of Sheldon Studio.
