Join us for a free Sunday Stroll on 19 September at 2pm, when detour guide Asha Capella will show us around the exhibitions Temporary House of Home and Designing the Social. Come along and discover the exhibitions from Asha's point of view.
The exhibition Temporary House of Home explores how our thinking about domestic interiors and design has evolved over the past decades. What makes a house a home? The exhibition is a labyrinth of rooms, each of which answers the question in a different way. Due to the pandemic, a ‘home’ has become an office, classroom, restaurant, and hospital, in addition to being a safe haven. In this exhibition, these and other developments in domestic design are addressed.
During this Sunday Stroll, we will also visit the exhibition Designing the Social. How has design contributed to new forms of living, working, and communicating? This question is central to the exhibition. Designers, researchers, and curators have selected and reinterpreted pieces from heritage collections and archives to tell us an assortment of stories about a century of social design.
“If you’re enthusiastic, familiar with a subject and good at communicating it, then you’re a good detour guide.”
Asha Capella is an all-rounder who loves to learn and do new things. One of her biggest passions is cooking. Her favourite things are food, people dancing offbeat and her family.
