Weil Design die Welt verändert...

Book Presentation at Sautter+Lackmann
Posted by Gestalten—11/2013

Editors Friedrich von Borries and Jesko Fezer are going to present their new book in Hamburg and talk about design's ability to change the world. Both professors at the HFBK Hamburg, Borries and Fezer constantly explore and shape the present-day design debate in theory and practise. Their book talks aboute everything that design can be—pragmatic and utopian, sustainable and wasteful, beautiful and ugly, poetic and realistic.

While we're surrounded by design in all different areas of life, Weil Design die Welt verändert... serves as a collection of fundamental texts that help talking about what design actually does to our lives. Design is not only the shape of things, but an exchange of art, politics, and philosophy.

The book presentation takes place on Thursday, November 14, at 7PM, at Sautter+Lackmann in Hamburg. RSVP on Facebook.
