“I preferred a more mechanical method”, “they were dressed half for battle and half for tennis” and “put away perversity from your mouth” are just some of the rather random creative prompts that the Anti-Design Festival put together as inspiration for designers.
The Anti-Design Festival, which takes place in London from 18 to 26 September 2010, is an alternative to the London Design Week. Initiated by Neville Brody, the Anti-Design Festival (ADF) will be a showcase of creative work that challenges the boundaries of conventional art and design.
Supporting “uncommercial, dangerous and anti-establishment” work ADF called on artists and designers to submit work that didn’t necessarily make it into the mainstream. Artists and designers could also view this as an opportunity to create work free from market restrictions and constraints.
ADF is a non-profit festival and aims also to encourage visitors to the exhibition to rethink the role of art and design in contemporary culture. For more information visit Anti-Design Festival.
