Out to sea?
Gigantic amounts of plastic garbage enter the seas every day and are thus gradually transforming into a plastic soup – with serious consequences for our health. With its new exhibition “Out to Sea?” the Museum für Gestaltung Zürich, in partnership with the Drosos Foundation, spotlights the effects of plastic debris as well as examining various possible solutions. MAO has prepared an accompanying exhibition with a focus on artificial materials and the properties of these materials presented through the selection of plastic items from the museum collections of industrial design.
