BIO 25 is represented by seven multidisciplinary teams, led by international guest designers in dialogue with seven Slovenian professionals, that were asked to explore precise locations as contemporary ruins, countryside, caves, forest, post-industrial sites, the Alps and the Mediterranean Sea as platforms from which to launch a discussion about our broader contemporary social condition. Each project starts with the formulation of a story, the so-called episode, where real context and hyper-fiction intersect. The overall goal is to activate a discourse around these situations, formulating questions and opening up possible scenarios and visions. Thus each location became a discursive space for a theoretical and design-related speculation. During the duration of FARAWAY, SO CLOSE there are four Saturdays reserved for the reprise of the tours (Check out the dates.).
