Subversive design

11/02 - 22/05/2022

Subversive design is critical design. It doesn’t offer any direct solutions. Instead, it questions the classical system’s status quo. From February 11 to May 22, 2022, the group exhibition transforms the NRW-Forum Düsseldorf into a “critical department store”.

Photographs by Matthias Schaller

11/02 - 22/05/2022

Reflective visors of astronaut helmets, desolate studios and abandoned offices in the Vatican: absence is the foundational motif in the work of photographer Matthias Schaller. He portrays people by avoiding their direct gaze. With some 100 works the exhibition presents the photographer’s unconventional portraits, which capture his unbounded curiosity for the world, the people, and the art around him.
