“a kind of” exhibition for showing “a kind of” progress

OMA’s Progress has just opened in the Barbican. Even if architecture is not particularly your field of interest, the exhibition is worth seeing for its tactics of data presentation and public engagement. In the following video, Rem Koolhaas guides through the show and refers also to the making of the exhibition, a process of collaboration – he refers to this process as the office’s “surrender” – with the curator team Rotor. The exhibition beautifully shows the potential of ‘curating’, captured in the simultaneousness of things and ideas, their relational stimulation and the possibility to express the processual nature of such simultaneousness and stimulation.

have a look yourself here…

an interview with the curators you’ll find at the Barbican webpage, i.e. here…
