It’s not simply presenting artworks, design objects (both quickly becoming fetishized by market forces), and theoretical comments (which can easily become glorified sales-talk) in parallel to each other. Rather, Casco has been striving to find and articulate areas where making art, designing and theorizing as conceptual activities, not just as separate disciplines, challenge, penetrate, and stimulate each other—and gather in their tangent points. An example of the kind of question that Casco seeks to address, together with various practitioners, is: how can our designed world be understood, re-imagined and re-formalized?
A noteworthy statement on the means and ends of interdisciplinary practice by Binna Choi, Director of CASCO - Office for Art, Design and Theory. Something to aspire to.
