Gardens are mirrors of identities, dreams and visions; they have deep cultural roots. For some years now, gardens have been on everyone's lips - not only as a romantic idyll, but as fields of experimentation for social justice, climate change, biodiversity, in other words, for a sustainable future. Gardens have become places of the avant-garde. With "Garden Futures", the Vitra Design Museum presents for the first time a major exhibition on the history and future of the modern garden. The exhibition is designed by the Italian design duo Formafantasma. Which ideas and concepts have shaped our present-day garden ideal? What contribution do gardens make to a more sustainable future that is livable for all? The exhibition explores these questions through a wide range of examples from design, everyday culture and landscape architecture - from deck chairs to vertical urban farms, from contemporary community gardens to greened buildings and gardens by designers and artists such as Roberto Burle Marx, Mien Ruys and Derek Jarman.
