In preparation, designers, architects, scientists, artists, communication experts, education experts and sociologists have been invited to submit their contributions. The candidates were selected by a jury and have been assembled into interdisciplinary teams. Together, they are developing ideas and prototypes which are intended to show ways in which society can optimise the handling of information and its veracity, knowledge and knowledge transfer, and offer alternatives. The manifold results of the Biennial, curated by museum director Thomas Geisler, will then be presented at the Kunstgewerbemuseum in Dresden in 2020.
