“After Present” is the motto that summons this III Biennial that will account for world, regional, national and provincial design in its different taxonomies. “We live in a time when the transition from an analog society to a digital one has accelerated, affected by a pandemic, this moment can well be considered a turning point in history. Thinking about the future of design in all its fields of action and its impact on society first implies understanding the present as the (pre)history of tomorrow”explains Jonny Gallardo, Curator of the Biennial.

At the time, the first vice president of ADEC, Hernán Soneyro, highlighted: “The 3rd Córdoba City Design International Biennial aims to generate a space for collective and proactive construction that contributes to the improvement and competitiveness of the various social, economic and productive sectors through design as a transversal strategic axis. A true cultural impact on the territory, stressing the discourse of design as a determinant to anticipate possible futures”.
