Primitivism at the 2012 Biennale, Venice

Primitivism is in the air! Or so it seems… Ever since the start of our project we have had the feeling that primitivism is becoming ‘a topic’, so to speak: the fact that last September a ‘Primitivism forum’ was launched during the Venice Biennale only serves to confirm this, of course. During the launch six international teams of three students were given the task to “design the habitat for the future”, one that was inspired by the primitive theme. Their ideas can be seen in the video below, and on this website: http://www.theplan.it/forum/primitivism/ 

Love the linen bags in the video, by the way: does anybody know where to get them?
