Matylda Krzykowski is a designer, curator, advisor and professor focusing on collaborative and performative projects in physical and digital space. Krzykowski’s work is introspective, as it explores and experiments with the inner mechanisms of design. As such, her projects dissect the design process to its different stages – from material and personal origins, to methodologies and education; from network and politics to social projections, and the spectrum in between.
With a strong perspective on design as a discipline of communication, her work within these questions explores not only content but also form, for which interdisciplinary and artistic links are made. Among others, her tools of exploration have included Choreography, Reportage, TV game shows, Theater and innovative and experimental formats that range between exhibitions, workshops, interventions and talks.
She is founding member and artistic director of Depot Basel place for contemporary design, Switzerland, and is a former participant of the Jan van Eyck Academy. Since October 2017 Matylda Krzykowski is international guest professor in the Industrialdesign Department of the Muthesius University of Fine Arts and Design. Her seminars rank from Methods & Formats to Multiversum and Muthesius Parallax.
In Fall 2018 Matylda Krzykowski will join the faculty of The School of Arts Institute Chicago in the Department of Architecture, Interior Architecture and Designed Objects. Appointed the Mitchell Visiting Professor she will contribute with her experimental practice to an interdisciplinary community of artists and designers.
