Het Nieuwe Instituut presents ENTER_Milan, from 6 to 10 September during Supersalone, the 2021 edition of Salone del Mobile. The public programme, that will take place both online and in Milan, reflects on the current state of the design field and the challenges ahead.

Enter

The programme marks the first public appearance of Enter, an online meeting and event platform initiated by Het Nieuwe Instituut. Enter combines experimental digital design, web development and critical reflection in pursuit of the goal of building a more independent, privacy- and human-friendly alternative to the standard online platforms. While continuously in development, Enter provides an intimate and flexible online space for conversations and small-scale events. On this occasion, Enter also transforms into a physical interior, creating a hybrid environment for meetings between people in Milan and elsewhere.

The programme is embedded within the exhibition Missed Your Call by Design Academy Eindhoven, showing graduation projects of their 2020 Bachelor graduates, and takes place in a former bakery factory built in 1898, a hidden industrial architecture in the centre of Milan and most of the year closed to the public. 

Programme

ENTER_Milan includes five days of readings, explorations, interviews, discussions and presentations by and with designers, writers, curators, educators, students and others working in design.

Design Dialogues (11:00–12:00) focuses on design education, more-than-human knowledge, social and ecological practices, among other topics. On Show (12:30–15:30) presents activations in space (live performances), conversations and screenings of Design Academy Eindhoven 2020 graduates’ works. Then the Salone Reports and Readings (16:00–17:00), invites critical design thinking from a variety of writers and designers exploring the works presented in Milan.
