Interaction design and new perspectives on museums at the MUTAGEN/Musée des Refusés show

Last week, the 2017 graduating class of the MA in Interaction Design exhibited their final projects, alongside work by current students of the MA in Design: Expanded Practice.

Interaction Design graduates have reached the end of a 15-month programme, and their output reflects the diversity of their perspectives and approaches, with projects tackling topics as varied as redefining the limits of architecture, Saudi futurism, or measuring time through a drawing machine.

Meanwhile, the very first cohort of Expanded Practice students are responding to the Musée de Refusés brief, reinterpreting the museum to showcase objects and ideas rejected by traditional museum spaces. Students worked in groups and offered innovative interpretations, from investigating museum artefacts acquired through colonialism to proposing a museum space where touching the displays is encouraged.

Interviews with more details about the projects will be coming soon, so watch this space! Meanwhile, more photos from the exhibition can be found on our Facebook page.
