Unintended Beauty at the MADD

musée des arts décoratifs et du design / photo / Alastair Philip Wiper / Bordeaux / museum / design / manufacturing

Until 10 january, 2021

The Unintended Beauty exhibition is a photographic exploration in the heart of manufacturing and production sites around the world (adidas, Bang & Olufsen, Boeing, CERN, Kvadrat, Playmobil...).

The exhibition offers a rare glimpse of these workplaces that are usually hidden from view and reveals the hidden beauty and incredible complexity of these infrastructures.

Machines that break atoms, make fabrics or produce medicines, all are the fruit of the human collaborative imagination and tell a bit about who we are: our needs, desires, follies and vision of the future. The sustainability of a future seems to depend on our ability to create and innovate. Exponential creativity combined with cutting-edge technology that contributes greatly to our well-being and at the same time constitutes a definite threat to living things.

These aesthetically fascinating images question man and his complex relationship with machines.
The exhibition presents an ethical reflection on modes of production which remains one of the priority issues of design.

Echoing the exhibition Playground - The Design of Sneakers (until 10 January 2021), which features photographs of adidas production sites in Bavaria and Indonesia.
