MINISTRY OF PLEASURE

Design, like no other art form, gives us the opportunity to perceive and understand the world in a new way, to better grasp the importance of other things around us and life in general. That perspective can only be personally articulated, when it is provided through an insider’s view into this “different perspective”. That’s why Ministry of Pleasure has the mission to present the most recent and high quality, exciting and challenging designs from an upcoming design destination, Macedonia.


We sincerely believe that designs made by local designers are very strong, original and honest. The designs are treating mainly local or regional subjects even though they use the global language, approach and techniques. The designers in this second touring exhibition produced by the platform Ministry of Pleasure tell us stories about themselves and people that surround them. This exhibition is very specific because it gives full inside of the current design scene in the country, ranging from faculty potential till the internationally prominent professionals.
