Hacking Households are a part of the exhibition Off the Grid between 22 - 28 February at this year's Munich Creative Business Week. The exhibition showcases the latest stances on design that address the problem and aim at changing perspectives and illustrating alternatives through future-oriented concepts and design-fiction. It presents speculative design as a tool for making fictional reality tangible and serve as a catalyst for innovation. With their showcase Hacking Households raise the question of what would happen, if objects were produced the way open-source software is developed.
