The Goethe-Institut in partnership with IFA (Institut für Auslandsbeziehungen, the German institute for international relations) and the Vargas Museum presents PURE GOLD - UPCYCLED! UPGRADED! an exhibition that highlights re- and upcycling in design.
 
Composed of 76 pieces by 53 designers from 7 regions in the world, Pure Gold is currently touring the world and will count Manila as one of its stops this year.
 
This initiative of IFA is an exhibition with the theme of upcycling – the re-use of raw materials that have already been processed to create new objects of greater value – aims to raise awareness of alternative production techniques, while simultaneously pointing up contemporary European and non-European design developments. The designs use what appear to be inferior starting materials, combine different kinds of objects in an unconventional way, or creatively process unwanted by-products.
