Faraway, So Close - BIO 25

Editors: Maja Vardjan, Angela Rui & Cvetka Požar
Publishers: MAO Ljubljana & Motto Berlin
Ljubljana 2017, 342 pp., eng., ill.
ISBN 978-2-940524-69-3

Excited over our fresh new book, Faraway, so close, edited by Angela Rui, Maja Vardjan and Cvetka Požar published by MAO Ljubljana and Motto Berlin.

The book works to explore ways of changing the goals of design culture. By presenting the seven investigative episodes developed within BIO 25 and their interchange with both local archives and broader paradigms, the project aims to turn away from the urgent need to solve problems, and instead open up new frontiers for observation and experimentation. It seeks to consider our inhabited and habitable world for what it is and what it is becoming, and not simply what we think it should, ideally, be.

Contributions by: Nabil Ahmed, Andrea Branzi, Tony Côme, Brendan Cormier, matali crasset, Domitilla Dardi, Odo Fioravanti, Didier Fiúza Faustino, Studio Formafantasma, Thomas Geisler, Rory Hyde, Alexandra Midal, mischer’traxler studio, Dimitrij Mlekuž, Point Supreme Architects, Emanuele Quinz, Renata Salecl, Anna-Sophie Springer, Studio Folder, James Westcott, Elia Zenghelis and many others

The book features an extensive photo documentary essay of the episodes by Delfino Sisto Legnani and Marco Cappelletti.
