Please join us as Paola Antonelli, Curator in MoMA and XXII Triennale di Milano will hold an open lecture at Aalto University on Broken Nature, the theme of next year’s Triennale di Milano. Aalto University is organizing Finland’s participation in the 2019 Triennale di Milano, from March to September 2019.

While our natural world gets warmer and human relationships to the natural world have frayed or altogether severed, the upcoming 22nd Triennale di Milano will focus on how creative practices can design reparations for Broken Nature.
