HONEST BY & THE VITRA DESIGN MUSEUM

On Friday, the 3rd of March 2017, the Vitra Design Museum is holding a symposium in collaboration with the initiative “Swiss Cultural Entrepreneurship” of the Academy of Art and Design, Basel. The symposium “It´s not the Economy – the renewal of enterprise through culture” focuses on the interaction and of art / culture and business. Artistic freedom, visual communication, high flexibility and cross-disciplinary thinking are qualities that characterize such economic ventures and that are in high demand in more classical economies as well. The symposium will show case studies and experiences, bring protagonists and theorist together and highlight future prospects.
Due to the pioneering work Bruno Pieters has done at Honest By, the world´s first 100 % transparent fashion company, and his manifold achievements as a fashion designer, art director and entrepreneur, Pieters will be one of the keynote speakers of the symposium.
The symposium will take place in the beautiful setting of the Vitra Campus on the 3rd of March from 10 am to 6 pm.
