From 14 to 16 October 1971 the VII Congress of the International Council of Societies of Industrial Design (ICSID) was held in Eivissa. The event was conceived as a point of convergence between design and the most experimental forms of art and architecture.

The congress became a test bench for studying the relationship between those practices and marked a new way of understanding design. As such it preceded the Pamplona Meetings, which took place the following year, prolonging the participative spirit that the ICSID had launched in a natural environment.

The exhibition commemorates the event and highlights the ideas we can draw on for or own time: sustainability, participation, solidarity, the new relations between industry and society and the liberating role of the experience of art.
