Mapping The Commons Across The Spectrum

Let’s participates in BDB’21 to expose, proceed, and record any design related artefact and features in Bandung

Bandung Design Biennale [BDB] 2021 proposes Excavate: Mapping The Commons Across The Spectrum as its central theme. Held in November to December, BDB'21 intends to complement and regenerate the domestic panorama of the design context by mapping various actors through an excavation of thoughts, objects, and actions as a form of value diversification.

Bandung Design Biennale 2021 aims to dig more into how creative explorations can be shifted outside the conventional exhibition format. How might open-ended experiments and critical questions that touch economy, environment, society, and culture can be the first step for all of us to re-answer.

In an excavation process, each finding will certainly be an indication of the involvement and connection of each element: discipline, actors, and the knowledge contained in it. Thus in the process, BDB'21 will undergo the stages of identification, interaction, and participation which are expected to jointly be able to bring up alternative thoughts and practices, as well as enrich the potentials and solutions for the community. Curated by Prananda L. Malasan [Design Science Researcher], Krishnamurti Suparka [Interdisciplinary Practitioner], and Herry Sutresna [Designer], BDB will respond to various ideas, objects, and practice findings into several programs in the format of showcases, discourses, and public archives.



Bandung Design Biennale'21 opens opportunities for the entire community to contribute to the Public Archive program. We welcome all forms of your archives - both text and photo documentation of ideas, objects, and actions in the creative ecosystem of Bandung City.

The results of the submission will go through the curation phase and be published through all digital channels and the BDB'21 directory so that it can be accessed by the public.

This program is open to all people, regardless of age, education level, or type of work. Download entry details for more information
