HOW TO DESIGN A REVOLUTIONTHE CHILEAN WAY TO DESIGN
Within the framework of the commemoration of the 50 years of the civil-military coup d’état in Chile, Centro Cultural La Moneda, Pontificia Universidad Católica de Chile, the MIT International Science and Technology Initiatives (MISTI), MIT Program in Science, Technology, and Society (STS), Ministerio de Ciencia, Tecnología, Conocimiento e Innovación and Goethe-Institut Chile invite you to visit the exhibition Cómo diseñar una revolución: La vía chilena al diseño, a comprehensive exhibition on graphic and industrial design carried out during the government of President Salvador Allende.
Under the curatorship of Hugo Palmarola, Eden Medina and Pedro Ignacio Alonso, the exhibition presents a broad and sensitive tour of the visual and material culture of a fundamental historical moment. Thus, by means of 350 original design pieces intended for collective action, the democratization of reading and music, the reduction of technological dependence and the overcoming of child malnutrition, it will also feature the first integral reconstruction of the Cybersyn operations room.
