With the exhibition project “Planet B”, from the 2 June to 21 August 2016, the NRW-Forum Düsseldorf presented alternative designs for the future and an exhibition as a living organism.
The international group exhibition “Planet B – 100 ideas for a new world” engages with the radical changes to our planet – and looks for a plan B, for the future we are all dreaming of. Some 500 years after the publication of Utopia, a novel by Thomas More, artists, designers, architects, researchers and entrepreneurs will be presenting their utopias for the 22nd century. These can be viewed from the 2 June to 21 of August 2016, at the NRW-Forum Düsseldorf.
“With Planet B we want to generate fresh impetus for a new world. It is about the big social and societal issues of our decade: How are we going to live? Where are we going to live? What will we be fighting about? What will we be eating? We don’t however just want to debate these questions. We also want to find answers and realise those projects”, says Alain Bieber, artistic director of the NRW-Forum Düsseldorf.
