Open Call Design Museum

Design Museum is looking for entries that study the theme of knowledge and information through the lens of design for its exhibitions for the autumn of 2022. The call is open for Finnish and international designers, working groups, businesses, curators, researchers or students and will be open until 30 September.

The fourth Design Club open call for exhibitions has been built around the thematic of a new understanding and is a way of searching for new, powerful exhibition content and developing new business support forms for creative activities.

An idea for an exhibition can be extended to comment on many types of social themes, from polyphony to questions of equity connected to knowledge production. Entries can take advantage of processes of object design, social design, infographics, user interface design, art handicrafts, or critical design. The decision will be made by a jury consisting of the Design Museum’s exhibition producer and head of sponsorship, and the head of exhibitions, services, and concepts of the Finnish Museum of Architecture.

The exhibition selected through this process will be held in the Design Museum’s Gallery space in the autumn of 2022 and will be granted €10,000 production funding. The winning proposal will also be offered the use of the Gallery space of the Design Museum Helsinki, help for putting the exhibition together and for its basic expenses. More information about the open call can be found here.

The call is organized in association with Design Club, the business network of Design Museum. The members of the Design Club are Finnish companies that seek to develop their business with the aid of design. Design Museum is an internationally recognized national specialist museum of Finnish design that researches, collects, stores and documents design, and displays it both in Finland and in touring exhibitions abroad.
