MAY 7 – MAY 17, 2016

Transitions: Migration and Travel Exhibition | Brooklyn


In our transient lives, movement from one place or state to another is common, if not expected. Our boundaries are constantly being redefined, both physically and conceptually. Yet all this movement is creating new challenges and reinforcing existing ones, intimate issues of belonging and identity become critical: voluntary versus forced migration, passports, visas, adapting to new transit regulations and technologies, refugees, illegal immigrants, acceptance and integration into new cultures and societies, while needing to keep connections to native lands and homes alive.

The "Transitions: Migration and Travel" exhibition looks at the fundamental role that design plays in opening up awareness to issues, encouraging relevant conversations and presenting innovative solutions, while the D&F label presents on the same topic a unique collaborative collection, available for purchase, all designed to add flow.

Stephan Weiss Lecture Series: Design and Flow


In a world where turbulence in our political systems, disconnectedness in how we approach nature, and roughness in our economic and organizational dealings are prevailing, strategic design has a valuable role in adding flow (continuous, smooth and graceful changes) to situations and creating solutions to current crises. The panels and discussions feature academics, scholars, practitioners, businessmen and policymakers to explore whole system redesign and the roles each are playing in redesigning our products, services, processes, organizational structures and lifestyles, as well as how they are engaging people, organizations and communities in the redesign and implementation process.
