Entitled Are We Human? The Design of the Species, this year's exhibition is curated by Beatriz Colomina and Mark Wigley. It will focus on the relationship between design and the human species over the last 200,000 years.

Four themes will be explored during the show, including designing the body, designing the planet, designing life and designing time. Designers, architects, artists, historians, archaeologists and scientists from 13 countries will present over 70 projects.

"Humans have always been radically reshaped by the designs they produce and the world of design keeps expanding," explained the curators.

"We live in a time when everything is designed, from our carefully crafted individual looks and online identities, to the surrounding galaxies of personal devices, new materials, interfaces, networks, systems, infrastructures, data, chemicals, organisms, and genetic codes."

The exhibition will also feature three initiatives, including The Open Call for Videos that received over 200 submissions from 36 countries.

The Superhumanity collaboration with e-flux will present more than 50 international writers, while a group of experts in Turkey will build an inventory of design and working library for the Turkey Design Chronology project.
