Did you know? #57

Did you know that all of our past exhibitions are available online?

Provocative plastics? discuss, debate, deliberate

Plastics are used worldwide in design and manufacturing. Their use divides opinion and has many proponents and undoubtedly as many opponents. Nevertheless it is a group of materials which has enabled social, technological and medical advancement and offers infinite possibilities to designers.

This exhibition showcases objects from MoDiP’s collections which illustrate differing comments on design and plastics made by historical and contemporary artists, designers and social commentators.

Both design and plastics elicit strong opinion. Do you see creativity or kitsch? Problems or opportunities? Waste or resources? Here is an opportunity for you to discuss, debate, and deliberate.

Have your say: send us a tweet including the case no. @MoDiPAUB
