Viviane Stappmanns, curator of the Vitra Design Museum, is the first guest of the second edition of the Elisava Masters Talks series of conferences, with the presentation ‘Curating for the Common Good’.
Viviane Stappmanns is interested in exploring the contribution that conservators can make to rethinking design as a practice related to ecological and social sustainability. In her exhibition and teaching work, she experiments with new collaborative approaches. Stappmans has taught at various schools and universities, including the School of Architecture and Urban Design at RMIT University in Melbourne, Australia, and, more recently, at the University of Arts and Design in Karlsruhe. Before working at the Vitra. Design Museum, she worked as an editor and curator in architecture and design contexts in Australia and Germany, and she holds degrees in Interior Design and Journalism.
The exhibition “Here We Are! Women in Design 1900 – Today!” opens at the Barcelona Design Museum in October 2023. Currently, Stappmans is working on the international traveling exhibition ‘Garden Futures’ which will open at the Vitra Design Museum in Spring 2023.
