Cameron Tonkinwise has been one of the most outspoken voices at the crossroad between design theory and continental philosophy. Francesco Degl’Innocenti virtually sat down with him for an informal conversation on the paradoxical state of innovation and the political stance of design in ever-shifting spectrums.
Taking the Country’s Side. Common trajectories in agriculture and architecture.
Interview with Sébastien Marot
Taking the Country’s Side is an exhibition exploring “the complex relationship between architecture and agriculture over the past 10,000 years.” Curator Stéphane Marot's position may be comparable with the one Beatriz Colomina and Mark Wigley developed in their Istanbul Design Biennial for Are We Human? show, exploring 200,000 years of design. Design is not something new but deeply human and therefore present from day 1 of human’s presence on Earth. Christophe Catsaros sat with Sébastien Marot to discuss the contexts of this exhibition, the concerns and problems it shows and the message of hope it ends with.
