The Arena

The Graduation Show is more than just an exhibition of graduates’ work. As part of the show, the Arena offers a permanent platform for addressing aspects of design practice that underpin or transcend the object, and themes that connect them. Performances, films, presentations and debates are staged by graduates and prominent professionals from the design field and the extended DAE community. The audience can participate in the discussion of the influence of new technologies and the agency of the user, experience the different aspects of artificial olfactive molecules or see a performance exposing and liberating static body posture in offices.
