Fear and Love Film series

NOWNESS presents

Global video channel NOWNESS presents Fear and Love, a gonzo collaboration with the Design Museum.

About the series

Fear and Love profiles designers, architects and creative thinkers with a gonzo twist.

The series is also a nod to one of the museum’s inaugural exhibitions, Fear and Love: Reactions to a Complex World, which challenges designers to share their view on pressing contemporary topics, from sustainability and technology to the changing landscape of love in a digital age.

In hopes of capturing the nonconformist, fast-paced nature of design and its practitioners, Fear and Love goes against the grain of the sit-down interview and profiles designers, architects, and creative thinkers with a gonzo twist, capturing meandering conversations that touch on the personal, the professional, and the entirely tangential.
