About

21_21 DESIGN SIGHT will hold the exhibition "traNslatioNs - Understanding Misunderstanding" from October 16, 2020. The exhibition director, Dominique Chen, researches informatics and has undertaken many interdisciplinary studies of art, design and expressive media.

Translation is a process that supports communication between two parties that are otherwise unable to understand each other. This exhibition presents the possibilities for acceptance and embrace of this mutual incomprehension. Taking the role of translation as a kind of "communication design," a space will be created that allows the visitor to experience the mysterious nature of language that we are unaware in our lives and the excitement of new discoveries of meaning or misunderstandings that emerge from this insight.

The exhibition period has been revised to prevent the spread of COVID-19.
