Industry, quality and designs’s socialization

21 October

If we analyze the advantages and disadvantages of industrial processes, we will find an outstanding paradox. The handmade object considered humble and modest, today is valued more thanks to its high degree of sustainability and social justice.

Commonly, with a higher economic cost due to their production, they become exclusive objects within the reach of few. Industrial productions, manufactured in series, in much less time and in large quantities, are safer, cheaper and more affordable for any pocket, but they lack personality since they are icons of something fleeting and out of date.

In this session that will revolve around the concept of quality, we will discuss this paradox with Santiago Cirugeda and Ana Domínguez Siemens.

This activity is part of «Hands and machines: between crafts and industry», a program of activities co-organized by the “La Caixa” Foundation and the FAD, and curated by Pau de Solà-Morales in the framework of the exhibition «The universe by Jean Prouvé. Architecture, industry, furniture ”, an exhibition organized in collaboration with the Center Pompidou.
