This event has finished

Opening Tuesday 21 February 6-9pm BeirutMakers present their third design exhibition under the title Command: Commandline, showcasing a variety of locally-developed know-how's for authoring, editing and hybridizing digital and physical media as a mode of design.

The exhibition draws on the notion of the commandline, a software utility upon which many design programs are based, as the key to defining the relationship between the designer and design-object. Relayed as a sequence of orders, this relationship outlines the designer’s newfound agency to make design decisions that are at the same time defined by syntax and material meaning. Juggling; tweaking; zooming in and out; bifurcating; reversing through different commands yields different possibilities for tentative, accidental and playful design-objects.

The exhibition features the latest designs by four members of the BeirutMakers collective: Ahmad S Khouja, Guillaume Credoz, Karim Edgard Chaya and Stephanie Bash (Bachir). Additionally, world-renowned designer, Janne Kyttanen, will be a special guest of the exhibition. Set around organizing two exhibitions each year, this winter BeirutMakers invited two independent curators Adham Selim and Dima Hamadehh to join their effort for bringing digital design and fabrication to the fore of discussion over the future of design in Lebanon and the region.
