Add to calendar 02/11/22 05/09/22 Europe/Madrid EXHIBITION. Why Am I Like this?

"Hello, we are some of the objects you commonly use in your house or at home. Yet, you barely have noticed how we are. We are gathered at the exhibition 'Why Am I Like This?' To explain you how we were born, how do we work and why we are shaped like this. We have been created by designers, we don’t sprout from the ground nor fall from a tree. Each one of us has some special speciality: cheapen, simplify, innovate, reduce, surprise, stylize, add, complement ... in short, we improve your human life.

The exhibition for the Center del Carme Cultura Contemporània is jointly organized and produced by the Consorci de Museus de la Comunitat Valenciana and World Design Capital Valencia 2022, with the support of the Diputació de València. We want to highlight how important we are in order to improve your life a little. We are part of the Pérez de Albéniz-Bergasa collection; and Juli Capella has compiled and drawn us, to explain how we work.

We are small objects, but we offer you great benefits. From a paper clip to a funnel, through the light bulb, the telephone, the easy opener, a flip flop or a coffee maker. Some of us are more beautiful than others, but we all have something in common, we serve you. Come visit us and we will tell you why we are like this. From now on you will see us with different eyes."
