Design and Violence at MoMA
Last month, MoMA launched Design and Violence, an online exhibition that looks at design’s history of violence. Assembling a wide range of design objects, projects, and concepts that have an ambiguous relationship with violence, the site intends to evoke discussion around various items.
Each week, experts from a variety of fields are invited to respond to selected design objects and spark a conversation in the comments at the base of each post. Covering objects such as The Liberator, a 3D-printed gun to the Stiletto Heel, the essays defend and critique and readers weigh in with their own thoughts and opinions.
Design and Violence is organized by Paola Antonelli, Senior Curator, Department of Architecture and Design, MoMA; Jamer Hunt, Director, graduate program in Transdisciplinary Design, Parsons The New School for Design; and Kate Carmody, Curatorial Assistant, Department of Architecture and Design, MoMA.
