Thonik: Why We Design, Shanghai
A decade after their first solo-show in Shanghai, Thonik returns to China to celebrate its 25th anniversary with ‘Why We Design’, a thought provoking exhibition exploring the motives that drive Thonik’s design practice.
The show focuses on moving graphics, animation and other time-based media. In eleven rooms eleven projects are highlighted that are exemplary of eleven underlying motives.
At the occasion of this exhibition the Chinese translation of the book ‘Why We Design’ has been launched. It’s a mixture of monography, self-reflexive pamphlet and critically inspired soul-searching. The English edition of the book is published by Lars Müller Publishers.
