Bahbak Hashemi-Nezhad invites you to join him for an afternoon of discussion over a shared lunch, an elemental aspect of his studio practice. Bahbak produces work spanning the domestic and public realms, from food and games to spaces and products. He addresses through real-life projects the role of defamiliarisation and play as critical tools to engage publics within design processes.
Bahbak regularly conducts lectures and workshops internationally and has exhibited as part of the Serpentine Galleries, The Showroom, Liverpool Biennial, Nottingham Contemporary, Shanghai Art and Design Biennale, MACBA Barcelona and LCCA Riga amongst others. Hashemi-Nezhad lives and works in London, where he leads a Masters platform at the Royal College of Art focusing on participatory and socially-engaged design.
Presented by Mansions of the Future as part of their Urban Form: Social Architecture & The Commons season. This programme of activity marks the start of the Mansions of the Future’s legacy year (2019 – 2020), which intends to engage artists, architects, academics and local citizens in conversation and debate around the past, present and future of Lincoln’s social and civic life, within the context of the local built environment.
