Pôle muséal becomes Plateforme10

After a planning phase to develop a "pôle muséal" in the center of the City of Lausanne, the concept has begun to take shape, and goes by the name of "Plateforme10". Construction-wise, the advent of this new identity represents the stage where the old buildings have disappeared, leaving only the historical nave that will become part of the mcb-a lobby. A symbol of the future arts platform, it is currently an open terrace, an esplanade revealing the scope of the emerging district devoted to the fine arts, design and photography.

Presentation of DABOOK, Tuesday 24 May at 18.30

The editions DABOOK, created by design editor DADADUM, present their very first book, Famous Ordinary Things, at the mudac. The publication is a tribute to modest objects developed within Swiss design culture. The contributions are snapshots of personal items taken with a mobile phone by ‘famous' Swiss actors in the creative, artistic or political field. We designed this book as a collaborative and participatory project: it took us over a year to collect all the images.

Tuesday 24 May at 18.30

19h: round table discussion with Chantal Prod'Hom et Susanne Hilpert-Stuber (mudac), Demian Conrad et Rob van Leijsen (Dabook), Milo Keller (photographer), Stefano Stoll (Director Vevey Images) and Adrien Rovero (designer).
