Lisboa, Portugal, 1999
Co-curator of the first edition of the Lisbon Conferences, part of the experimentadesign99 programme.
For three days – from 12 to 16 September, 1999 –, the Lisbon Conferences explored some aspects of design that complemented the theory behind the themes presented at the EXD’99 Biennale.
Targeted at a wide audience and filling the Small Auditorium of Centro Cultural de Belém, the Lisbon Conferences sought to boost the general public’s interest in design culture through the participation of leading figures in the world of creativity.
