Fear and Love: Reactions to a Complex World

Fear and Love: Reactions to a Complex World
'Fear and Love: Reactions to a complex world' is an exhibition of the new Design Museum in London. It consists of a series of eleven major new commissions by some of the most innovative practitioners in design and architecture. Each commission is intended to be a powerful statement about the potential of design today. The ambition is for this to be a landmark exhibition presenting cutting-edge positions that define our time.

The practitioners include London-based fashion designer Hussein Chalayan, the architecture practice OMA, founded by Rem Koolhaas, the artistic director of Muji, Kenya Hara, and the Spanish –with the support of AC/E– Andrés Jaque and Ana López.

The eleven installations explore a spectrum of issues that define our time – from protecting the environment to network culture and sentient robots. The exhibition asserts that design is deeply connected not just to commerce and culture but to urgent underlying issues – issues that inspire fear and love. This is a bold, multidisciplinary exhibition that aims to capture the mood of the present and establish the Design Museum as the home of design debate.
