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.
