The Future Can be Shaped
Our present is a product of diverse creative decisions: What and how we design shapes the world we live in. But what does the future look like? What is possible? What is probable? What is desirable? And what do we design if we want to achieve what is truly desirable? At the Superfuture Design Festival in Hanover, local and international designers come together to share progressive approaches and exchange on methodologies and practices in design as a driving force for a regenerative and equal future. We invite renowned designers with impulses from the fields of design research, material design, graphic design, and design education.

Superfuture Talks
As part of the Superfuture Talks, the festival invites local and international designers. Together they address the question “What can and must design do in the 21st century to solve man-made challenges?”. In keynote speeches, panel discussions, interviews, and round tables they share their experiences in testing critical and constructive design approaches and methodologies. The Talks are an invitation to exchange, discuss and network.

Superfuture Exhibition
The exhibition Nature’s Commodities deals with the economic appropriation of nature and reflects on our relationship to other living beings. Today, nature and its industrial reproduction serve primarily the purpose of commodification and multiplication of private wealth. The exhibition shows three artistic positions: Nature as digital commodity. Nature as an algorithmically produced entity. And nature as a symbiosis between organism and technological construct.
