More than a century after Adolf Loos wrote "Ornament and Crime" (1913), the discussion about ornament is still far from settled. The exhibition formulates a big question which aims to reconfigure the discussion about ornament, particularly focusing on its current appropriation and interpretation. By trying to find possible answers, the exhibition shows the complexity of a multifaceted narrative which looks into the very essence of ornament.
