What was Design?

08 Dec - 09 Dec 2017 / Universität der Künste Berlin, Charlotte-Salomon-Saal, Hardenbergstr. 33, DE

A conference of the Institute of History and Theory of Design of the UdK Berlin. The event's goal is to explore the current design discourse itself and thus examine the changes in the concept of design - historically, politically, institutionally, economically, aesthetically to take. First of all, there is the tendency to professionalize design and to make it relevant as a science.
