Ethnologist Sigrún Hanna Þorgrímsdóttir will give the talk Home is a slow event at the Design Museum, Sunday, March 19 at 1 p.m. Admission to the lecture and the exhibition The Design Museum as a Home is free.
The subject of the lecture is domestic customs and contemporary material culture. In the essay, the home is examined from an ethnographic perspective, in a holistic context and as an interwoven process of different tangible and intangible elements. Everyday aesthetics, sensory impressions and homely atmosphere will be touched upon, along with the constant struggle with the chaos that takes place within the walls of the home from day to day.
