What goes on in female designers’ heads? Whether we like it or not, the world is, to a large degree, a product of design. Behind the artifacts we use daily there are their authors – male and female! More often than not we do not know their names, or where they come from – not to mention what goes on in their heads and what inspires them. But we do know that without female designers, the industrial history of the region would have been completely different.
The exhibition is a meeting with female designers and good design promoters who either come from the region or are bound with it professionally. Some of them are already icons – and co-authors of the everyday we live in. Others, those working today, are writing new chapters in this history. Let’s meet them!
The exhibition is part of Industriada 2018, which gives the floor to women – because industry has never been solely a man’s world. And the motto of this year’s celebration of the Silesian Industrial Monuments Route is: ‘Industry is Female’.
