The international ZDW Exhibition Design Lab project offers a space for experts to meet with students, enthusiasts, and explorers of design and art. As part of the conference, which will take place on 23 February 2021 via the ZOOM platform.


Our lives are fast, culture is moving into the digital world, and the winners are those who are not afraid to face this challenge. That is why the organizers of the Zlin Design Week festival gathered experts from various countries, the most up-to-date information and experience they have, and invited them to join the ZDW Exhibition Design Lab conference. Sharing and finding new approaches is the way culture can evolve at this time.

How to transform the experience with which visitors leave galleries and cultural events into a digital environment? The possibilities of such a thing will be presented by 8 speakers on 23 February 2021 from 1 pm on the ZOOM platform. Speakers such as Helene Nikonole, the organizer of the FORECAST2022 festival, or Dutch designer Lorenzo Gerbi, who created the video concept for the Dutch Design Week, will provide participants with their own experience, and introduce the formats they can use. They will talk about the advantages and disadvantages, and especially they will mention how to connect experiences from digital exhibitions with individual works and the audience. The whole conference participants are hosted by Anežka Adamíková from CZECHDESIGN, who gained a lot of experience within the Zlín Film Festival and thanks to international cooperation in companies such as ATAIRU or MSD.

“I will base my lecture on designing my own online exhibition and will share some insights into the process behind it. That will include a walkthrough of the choices I made when it came to choosing which form, which tools, how to create an atmosphere, an experience and how to build and present it. From a technical viewpoint it will include photography, lighting design, 3D-design and building a 360 tour/museum”,  says Jelle, one of the Dutch speakers.

The door is open not only to art students, professionals and art and culture enthusiasts but also to all who want to learn about the new approaches and possibilities that the virtual world offers, gain new ideas, and be inspired by the work of foreign experts. Registration to the conference is completely free, but the number of seats is limited, so it is important to register in time HERE.

The whole project is funded by the Visegrad Fund, which supports regional cooperation in the Visegrad region, in cooperation with Sensorium Bratislava, KÉK - Hungarian Center for Contemporary Architecture, Jan Matejki Academy of Fine Arts in Krakow, and the University of Arts in Belgrade.
