Round Here goes on to Form/Design Center in Malmö!

Round Here is an exhibition about various craft and design stories found in Småland, a place that many of us have come to know through successful glass and furniture industries. The exhibition was first shown at Designarkivet in Pukeberg’s exhibition hall in the summer of 2023 and now the exhibition moves on in a slightly modified form to Form/Design Center in Malmö 22/11 2023–14/1 2024!

Here you will find descriptions of all participants and the downloadable publication Lära om arkivet/(Re-)learning the Archive.

Through the project (Re-)learning the Archive, Designarkivet writes design history as you have never seen it written before! In the exhibition Round here, Designarkivet steps aside and makes room for some of the many different craft and design histories that exist around us, here in Småland. The exhibition summarises the project (Re-)learning the Archive. The project has developed a method for how we can expand the writing of design history through an inclusive, listening, and learning practice. Read more about the exhibition and the exhibition’s participants in our website collections.

In November, the exhibition will be shown at Form/Design Center in Malmö, stay tuned to our channels for more information.
