The accelerated technological development impacts society in general and the conduct of designers in it in particular. The exhibition Up(to)Date attempts to capture the zeitgeist, in a culture that is constantly being updated, and point at our potential response to a connected world, the new perceptions, and technologies.
About the Exhibition: 24 students and fresh graduates of the “About Design” track at Bezalel’s Master’s Degree program, presents a renewed approach, through a personal filter, to development processes, patterns of consumption, manufacturing and distribution and the internal space influenced by them.
