Studio Folder is an agency for visual research founded by Marco Ferrari and Elisa Pasqual in 2011 and based in Milan. They worked with a number of prominent clients including Domus, the V&A Museum, and Olafur Eliasson; recently, they have been responsible for the exhibition design of Broken Nature at the XXII Triennale di Milano, curated by Paola Antonelli. Among their self-initiated research projects are: Uncharted, on remote sensing and satellite images; Italian Limes, awarded with a special mention at the 2014 Venice Architecture Biennale; and the book A Moving Border: Alpine Cartographies of Climate Change, coauthored with Andrea Bagnato (Columbia/ZKM, 2019).

On March 21, Marco and Elisa will be guest of the Research Methods module at MIARD. They will give an overview of their recent work, showing how the same design approach is materialized in installations, digital interfaces, and print media. This will be followed by a half-day workshop on the politics of the image and the construction of visual narratives.
