Norm Form, Oct 10 - Feb 11


Norm Form is an exhibition about design that challenges what is considered normal. HDK-employees Maja Gunn, Professor at the programme Textile - Body - Space at HDK Steneby, and Hanna Ekström, PhD student in design are two of the participants.

Have you ever wondered why a woman's bicycle is different to a man's? Or why a drill looks so different to a food processor? Norm Form displays the work of 54 designers and artists whose work challenges accepted norms about how an object or place should look and function.

This unprecedented exhibition reveals the hidden political messages we miss in our everyday experience of the designed world, and teaches us how to subvert them. You can experience design that speculates on how a gynaecological exam for a man might feel; a customised truck that enables disabled people to take direct action on their physical environment; view hijabs designed for the Swedish police force, the armed forces and the fire brigade.

The exhibition is a portrait of a radical emerging field with its roots in critical design and protest movements.

The exhibition runs until February 11th.
