An exhibition about risk and safety
21 March - 25 May 2013
Warning! Danger! Risk! Do we recognise warning signs? How do we respond to danger and risk in our society?
Risk centre is a project and an exhibition by the British designer Onkar Kular. In partnership with the architect Inigo Minns, he has created an interactive installation and a series of events that temporarily transforms a part of the museum into a combined performance stage and a facility for risk and safety management.
It is an educational and experience-oriented project about risk and safety that is aimed directly at children. The visitor is guided or moves independently through the settings, which include everything from the public environment to the home.
It is also an exhibition that highlights and discusses what contemporary design can be. The exhibition features obvious examples of physical dangers such as traffic, fire, water and personal safety, but it also deals with issues such as anti-social behaviour and environmental responsibility relating to emergency situations.
Risk Centre is a project and an exhibition by Onkar Kular with Inigo Minns, curated by Magnus Ericson. The project is produced by ArkDes with the support of the Royal College of Art, the Swedish Civil Contingencies Agency (MSB) and Printfabriken.
