A new year at the Disseny Hub
The Disseny Hub Barcelona starts 2021 with a program full of activities! If 2020 has been the quietest year in the history of the Disseny Hub due to the pandemic, this year we bring you a set of interesting and different proposals that will combine face-to-face and virtual formats.
In January, the lecture "Against design: the Gaudí case" can be watched on streaming on the 20th, by architect Juan José Lahuerta, who will talk about why Gaudí was not a designer as such. On the same day the Tourism and Culture Congress will be held where the debate will turn around which tourism model we want for the city of Barcelona, now that the pandemic prevents us from traveling like we did. On January 27, the book "Design and Francoism" will be presented, also in streaming.
In February, the Barcelona Fashion Summit 2021 arrives and, starting in March, a film festival: the American Film Fest, as well as the "Design Beyond Technology" session, the "Remix" exhibition.
In April, there is an introductory course on Spanish ceramics and some economic promotion days by the DHUB. During the month of May, we will be able to enjoy the OFFF Festival, the international Open House conference, the Night of the Museums , as well as the face-to-face part of the III Ibero-American Congress on the History of Furniture, by the Association for the Study of Furniture.
Towards the summer, in the month of June, we will celebrate Barcelona Design Week 2021 and also The best design of the year, an awards exhibition by Fad. The Design Museum will also inaugurate the exhibition Touched by Balenciaga, in collaboration with the Balenciaga Museum, and the course "From and for women" will begin, as well as the presentation of the publication "Furnishing vignettes. Contemporary design from the comic", both activities in charge of the Association for the Study of Furniture.
The Xup-Xup and Zip day camps in July will take us towards an August recess, to return in September with an International Film Festival and with a temporary exhibition of Jewelers. The Enjoia't Awards will also return, along with an exhibition and the open doors of the La Mercè Festival.
In October, the Design Museum will inaugurate a new permanent exhibition of product design, Common Objects. The course "The furniture of the 20th and 21st century" will start - online - by the AEM, and the reading club "Leer el Museo", by the El Clot-Josep Benet Library.
We continue working to confirm as soon as possible the programming for the months of November and December, as well as the confirmation of all the activities of the previous months. We are waiting for you at the Barcelona Design Hub in 2021!
