Some impressions from the public discussion ‘Traditions and Contemporary Design‘ together with Denis Milovanov, Anna Sazhinova moderated by Olga Druzhinina. Organized by Moscow Design Museum, Institut für Auslandsbeziehungen (IFA), and Goethe Institut Russland.

The project features works by young European, American and Russian designers. The Russian part of the exhibition was prepared by the Moscow Design Museum. The project explores the idea of “new” and “old” in design, reveals the nature of the relationship between tradition and innovation, tells about trends, forms and materials that, on the one hand, are constantly changing, and on the other – remain closely related to the historical context and traditional culture.
Location: Decorative Art Museum, Moscow
Curators: Volker Albus and Alexandra Sankova
