The EXD Biennale ends with the theme BEFORE & BEYOND
Over the years, the many themes defined by the Biennale have always had a prospective nature, often anticipating questions and ideas that proved to be essential in the years following each edition. Furthermore, these themes have always been characteristically timeless, remaining relevant to this day.
This year the Lisbon Conferences return to the Main Auditorium of the CCB.
The model chosen for this edition has the duration of one full day, in which 7 internationally renowned Speakers have been invited to each explore one of the 7 themes of the previous 9 editions. In line with EXD’17’s theme, Before & Beyond, each guest is challenged to explore one of the past themes, transporting them to 2017 and into the future. The subjects and areas debated are vast, including design, ethics, architecture, sociology, creativity, neuroscience and politics.
