As part of National Trust’s Heritage Festival, the Robin Boyd Foundation will host a panel on the topic of Midcentury Modernism in a Post Ironic World. Hear from experts from a cross-section of design fields as they discuss heritage and its place in modern-day..
Topic: Midcentury Modernism in a Post Ironic World Post irony is a term used to connote a state in which earnest and ironic intents become muddled – is modernism simply a trend on repeat or does it have deeper connections to modern living?
Panel of Speakers
- how has Robin Boyd’s role against ‘feature-ism’ and his aversion for the old fashioned and pastiche ideas helped or hindered an Australian identity.
- Is midcentury modernism making modern-day design complacent?
- Do we agree that society around the world is homogenising? Do we therefore get ‘muddled’ over the origins/identity/heritage of something?
- Where are we headed?
