Objects of Desire: Audio Described Tour
In a special relaxed hours tour, guide Andrew Mashigo provides an audio description of the exhibition Objects of Desire: Surrealism and Design 1924 – Today, focusing on a handful of highlights and key objects that demonstrate the centrality of design to the Surrealist movement, as well as the designers who are keeping the Surrealist Manifesto alive today.
Curated with Vitra Design Museum, the exhibition explores design from the birth of Surrealism in 1924 to the current day; spanning classic Surrealist works of art and design as well as contemporary Surrealist responses.
The display uncovers how one of the 20th century's most influential movements came to impact design through its questioning of the conventional and its commitment to exploring the mind, unconscious and mystical.
