Open Talk: From Toxic Textile Troubles to Fabulous Fibre Futures by Alexandra Fruhstorfer

28.03.2023, Tuesday, at 17:30, F4.06 Atelier, Unibz.

Alexandra Fruhstorfer is a transdisciplinary designer and researcher. In her practice she questions prevalent political and cultural paradigms, while trying to embrace phenomena of accelerated technological and ecological change. Using design as a strategic, yet playful tool she aims to enable more equitable imaginaries for our material culture on a planet in trouble by creating artefacts and experiences that provide space for critical reflection and collaborative action. Alexandra is a graduate from Industrial Design at the University of Applied Arts. Her work was shown at the Triennale di Milano, the Museum of Modern Art in New York and lately the Jerusalem Design Week. In 2021 she was a nominee for the Ralph Saltzman Prize at the Design Museum in London. In 2022 she was awarded the MehrWert design prize during Vienna Design Week.
