Matera Basilicata 2019 Foundation- Matera 2018 The Open Design School is one of the pillar projects of Matera 2019 and is directed by Joseph Grima. It is conceived as a network, a thinktank and a public institution of learning for the study of design in a spirit of creative and generous synergy between art, science and technology. It is a horizontal platform where all learn and all teach: a place of interdisciplinary exchange in which participants learn through prototyping and testing. It brings together designers, artists, craftsmen, web developers, graduates, students, professionals and academics from both the local context that from the rest of the world. In this framework Elisa is in charge of the research and production behind the I-DEA and Armin Linke exhibitions, powered by the Matera Basilicata 2019 Foundation.
