Design Biennale Zurich will be held between 12 August - 5 September, 2021 in Zurich

Design Biennale Zurich is initiated by the Association “Verein Freundeskreis Design”. As the third edition of the Design Biennale Zurich, the event will be held between 12 August - 5 September, 2021 at the Old Botanical Garden UZH, Zollikerstr. 107 8008 Zürich, Switzerland

The purpose of the association is to sharpen the awareness of design especially in Switzerland, to stimulate a critical debate, to identify new issues in the area of conflict between culture and economics and to strengthen the cultural relevance of design.

The 2021 theme of the event is Clash. The theme is centre around these questions: Are analogue and digital in conflict? What creative potential lies in cultural differences? How do expectations and reality meet? And at what point does the natural become artificial?.

Clash will showcase 12 installations in their subject: upcycling, algorithmic design, digital animal worlds, data protection or virtual reality. In the exhibition, design can be experienced up close. In addition, the event hosts a variety of activities such as daily guided tours, the Designers' Talks, Kids' Workshops. The program also integrates several partner events.
