** Gabriel Stromberg, creative director at Civilization, will lead a post-screening discussion **
** Co-presented with Civilization! **
The mid-1960s represented a revolutionary time when the need for change pervaded all aspects of life in the Western world. It was a time political violence, terrorism, and on an artistic level, of ‘positive turbulence.’ As the creativity of industrialists and designers swelled, Italy started becoming a global focus for design. Through the words and stories of 19 players, SuperDesign retraces the history and the heritage of the Italian Radical Movement. These architects, designers, and curators take us back to a time when everything seemed possible, to find that the dreams, utopias, ideologies, and passion that permeated their experience and art are still alive today.
