This year, Atelier Clerici also hosts students from the Design Academy Eindhoven (traditionally in Ventura Lambrate) who welcome visitors into the first room on the upper floor with a fully active television studio, creating an alternative reality "for a world filled with fake design projects". The exhibition curated by Jan Boelen (head of the department of Social Design) analyses the role and symbiotic relationship between design and the media today.
Other exhibitions include the “Talisman” collective where 46 designers have each created a lucky charm (sold at auction on 8 April) in response to the invitation of Barbara Brondi & Marco Rainò.
