Archeology of the Future

Twenty years of trend forecasting with Li Edelkoort are celebrated in the exhibition "Archeology of the Future", currently running at the Designhuis Museum in Eindhoven, The Netherlands. The exhibition, curated by Li Edelkoort, is divided into seven sections, organized by juxt aposed trends. The fourteen trends are a selection of the key lifestyle movements of the last twenty years, bridging the two centuries from 1990 to 2010: Body/Soul * Global/Local * Flora/Fauna * Urban/Rural*Armour/Amour Abstraction/Narration * Nihilism/ Hedonism
Inspiring images, clothes and pieces of product design are reminding us that these so called trends are actually lasting in time and that they effect many aspects of our daily life.
