The title ‘Hippie Modernism: The Struggle for Utopia’ of an upcoming exhibition at the Walker Art Center in Minneapolis, comes to propose a new term to what has been known as ‘Critical Design,’ ‘Postmodernism,’ and ‘Pop Design.’ The show, which is curated by Andrew Blauvelt, proposes to examine how the notion of daily life during the 60s and 70s was shaped by the vibrant movements of radical design. It brings together the various avant-garde design and architectural groups active in Europe and the US, and which contributed to shaping of this new, and significant chapter in design history. Among them the British group of Archigram, the American collective Ant Farm, Archizoom Associati, just to name a few who had a tremendous impact on the public interest in design and on social impact design. This period has been of a great interest to design historians in recent years. and was put into an academic perspective in the book 'Made in Italy,' edited by Grace Lees-Maffei. I look forward to seeing it in the fall.
