The 10th announces its new theme : The changing world of work

The 10th Saint-Étienne International Design Biennial will examine the ways in which the world of work is changing. The Saint Etienne International Design Biennial 2015 will be celebrating its 10th edition from 9 March to 9 April 2017. The scientific management of the event has been entrusted to the research department of the Cité du Design led by Olivier Peyricot. The 2017 edition will offer a reflection on The changing world of work*:
– Work is one of the major preoccupations of our society and until now it provided people with an income and status.
– The traditional salaried forms of work seem to have evolved to the point of partially disappearing or being radically transformed with the advent of a total focus on the digital.
– Work culture is infused in all the strata of our society, influencing the organisation of living spaces and social relations.
