Event Details

The Fixing of Things TALK

When did you last pull something apart and fix it? In subtle and overt ways we are frequently told ‘no’ to repair. Most of today’s consumer products don’t even come with disassembly or repair instructions.

This talk breaks open the concept of repair and why has it become so difficult? It charts the history of repair – once a fundamental necessity, now a political statement. And it provides new thinking. How can we take back control of our own resources? How can we break our dependence on manufacturers who create products with limited life spans? How can we use the art of repair to transform the abundance of everyday objects that surround us. Some say ‘buy or die’.

We shout ‘fix or die’.

Speakers
Guy Keulemans - thinker and designer
More speakers announced soon

MC
Genevieve Jacobs - ABC

Fix and Make at Hotel Hotel

Fix and Make is a series of workshops and talks at Hotel Hotel. Through the practical, the experimental and the philosophical, the program brings different people together to actively question our consumption of and relationship with objects. Collectively, with small acts of fixing and making we can get a better understanding of how things work.
 
Hotel Hotel is a hotel. A place of collaborative craftsmanship conceived of and made by artists, makers, designers and fantasists.
