Annual Report 2008

March 1, 2008

Proventus' annual report 2008 consists of NUMBERS, which is the more formal description of the development of the company, and the supplement TALK which is part of a series of conversations on issues that concern us as capitalists and citizens. This year’s TALK, with the subtitle “reflections on consumerism”, includes a documentation of several conversations between designers, architects, theorists and practitioners on the future of consumption. The discussion started as a physical meeting in London in January 2009 but then began to live its own life in the virtual world.Previous years' supplements WORDS, describing what we do, how we invest and how we view the world, TALK, with conversations on democracy and the meaning of design, and PICTURES, with art works by Mats Gustafson illustrating Proventus, our projects and activities over a quarter of a century, are part of the annual report supplements series.
