Bulky trash, waste, cheap materials: pure gold! At least in the eyes of active designers.

Gallery, 1 F, Back Building, TCDC Bangkok

Free admission

The Goethe-Institut Thailand in cooperation with ifa (Institut für Auslandsbeziehungen) and Thailand Creative & Design Center (TCDC) is presenting you the exhibition “Pure Gold – Upcycled! Upgraded!” proposing current upcycling approaches for value creation. Affected by global industrialisation and ever greater levels of consumption, upcycling became an urgent matter. As a result, ifa (Institut für Auslandsbeziehungen) is addressing this issue in the exhibition “Pure Gold – Upcycling! Upgraded!”, online platform, workshop and conference.

The exhibition is divided into 2 complementary parts: a physical and material exhibition and a virtual platform for dialogue, discussion and storage of knowledge. Working with 7 curators from Europe, Latin America, North Africa and the Near East, East Asia, Sub-Saharan Africa, South Asia and Southeast Asia, ifa brought together 76 exhibits from a total of 53 designers revealing diversity in value creation and appreciation within diverse contexts.

This exhibition is sponsored by PTT Global Chemical Public Company Limited, who puts an emphasis on resource usage under the concept of circular economy and develops projects to encourage upcycling and recycling.
