Projekt Bauhaus: Can design change society?

Interesting Symposium in Berlin, September 18th/19th. I’ll be there for sure.


Can design change society? How can we integrate emancipating ideas into a continuously progressing modernization? Has
the aspiration of the Bauhaus and the classical avant-garde to positively change society through design been validated?

By what means can we approach design change and the future in a new way today? What are targeted, but open-ended
work forms? What role does co-production play? How does one design one’s own existence? What is the role of the designer? Would the absence of design offer liberation?

The symposium and the exhibition place valid positions in the context of historical models and present them for discussion. At the center of such discussions are the goals, roles, design methods, and the social processes in which designers are embroiled.
