ADHOCRACY

"Adhocracy" is an exibition that unites over 60 projects by 120 designers from around the world, charting the migration of the epicentre of production from the factory floor back to the craftsman’s workshop.  Launched at the first Istanbul Design Biennial in 2012, the exhibition then toured to the LimeWharf in London and the New Museum in NYC for IDEAS CITY
