Brave New Alps
Art Territories’ web programmers, Brave New Alps (Bianca Elzenbaumer & Fabio Franz) investigate into the cultural value of design and its capacity to question our surrounding realities. Brave New Alps’ practice is focused upon developing a careful and exact evaluation of the cultural conditions surrounding a given project. By inhabiting the specific time and place of a project, and gaining insight from a variety of different subject specialists Brave New Alps develop an in-depth analysis of the given project’s social, political, physical and economic condition. Their resulting design process aims at creating a situation or an object, which actively suggests, and promotes a change in modes of thinking about, and operating within the identified conditions.
