REHOGAR is a collective exhibition and an annual gathering focussing on open design and reuse as tools for a social transformation in which better resource use, respect for people and the environment are key issues.
In this tenth edition, REHOGAR invites guests on a tour through an ecosystem of practices, tools and products which could alter our current consumption and production patterns.
REHOGAR – Open Design and Reuse showcases a wide range of projects which differ hugely in their level of complexity and scale of application. All have been developed to awaken our consciousness and to instigate change in our ways of living and interacting. Each one, in its own way, opens up and consolidates paths towards greater social and environmental justice.
These are real projects which provide everyday solutions and are worth far more than physical objects and their applications. More than 40 projects from across the world take a step away from the commercial throwaway culture and bring us closer to a collective and global consciousness based on using, caring and transforming.
Of the 45 exhibited proposals, half of them have been selected through an open call for projects and workgroups that took place the months before to the opening. The collection is completed with a selection of projects invited by the organization that want to amplify the dialogue that the exhibition proposes.
REHOGAR Open Design and Reuse celebrates its tenth edition with a R&T program (Research & Touring).
On the one hand, within the framework of REHOGAR X PLUS. Open Devices, we have started a collective research process that takes the projects from previous editions as their starting point and suggests reflecting on, putting into practice and jointly researching the thematic and methodological aspects encountered.
On the other hand, the Xth edition of REHOGAR exhibition has been touring in collaboration with some of the most relevant art and cultural production centers of Spain: Fabra i Coats: Contemporary Art Center of Barcelona and Art Factory, Medialab Prado and Central del Diseño (Dimad) of Madrid, Tabakalera International Center of Contemporary Culture of Donostia / San Sebastián and the La Nau Cultural Center of Valencia.
REHOGAR X PLUS. Open Devices has been a collective research project which tackles the issue of design as an open form and as a resource. Based on these two perspectives, it functions as an experimental and open research unit that, through four devices, tracks historical models and examines real projects to situate the present, explore with our own hands their transforming possibilities and speculate on new contexts of living and future paths for design practice.
REHOGAR X PLUS. Open Devices takes place in the Contemporary Art Centre of Barcelona – Fabra i Coats in Spain from September 19 to October 27, 2019.
A series of activities will be run in parallel to the exhibition to disseminate and explore its theoretical framework, to enable participants to discover first-hand and implement some of the solutions and initiatives on show, and to create spaces for remix and fun which foster collaboration networks.
