“SUPERDESIGN” | Film Screening & Discussion

Film Screening of SuperDesign directed by Francesca Molteni, (Italy, 2017, 62‘).
SuperDesign retraces the history and heritage of Italy’s Radical Design Movement through the perspectives of leading figures such as Franco Audrito, Andrea Branzi, Alessandro Mendini, and Gaetano Pesce. The movement emerged in the revolutionary 1960s, when the need for change spread throught the Western world and pervaded all aspects of life. SuperDesign explores these Radical works with the architects and designers, accompanying them through their cities and listeing to their revolutionary ideals.

After the screening, stay for a panel discussion with Franco Audrito, founder of Studio65 in Turin, Italy; Evan Snyderman, principal of R& Company in New York; and Cindi Strauss, the Sara and Bill Morgan Curator of Decorative Arts, Craft, and Design.
