The second presentation in the new Design Column series by Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen focused on the hopelessness of the prevailing economic situation. The exhibition made clear that the financial system is completely alienated from society and it is becoming increasingly urgent to make people the central concern again. ‘Design Column #2 The Human Index’ presented projects and works of art that seize upon this urgency.
The crisis that simply won’t go away gives artists and designers inspiration for projects and works of art that make people the central concern again. Design Column #2 The Human Index shows projects that put people and human interests once again at centre stage. These projects provide a new perspective on the discussion about the meaning of value.
