TOTEM AND TABOO. Complexity and relationships between art and design.

TOTEM AND TABOO is an exhibition about conventions in art and design. Since the 1960s, artists have repeatedly used design objects in their work as references, and for some time design has been incorporating concepts and formats from art. One offs and limited editions are produced solely for exhibitions, transforming design from utility to an event. The exhibition concentrates on contemporary art and contemporary design. Rather than explaining its subject, it explores a gap in the discourse on design and art and questions the boundaries of disciplines.

TOTEM AND TABOO views art as a hypothetical "father figure" or relative of design. The metaphor of family relationships or family similarity led the group of writers and curators behind the show to take a closer look at Sigmund Freud's "Totem and Taboo". He wrote this collection of essays around 1910, about the same time that modern design first emerged as a discipline. The totem is an object representing an absent relative, and the taboo refers to the fear of incest, or in other words excessive closeness to a relative. The curators have used Freud's book as a model to describe the relationship between design and art.
