Vitra Design Museum, Weil am Rhein

Talk: Alison J. Clarke - Design Revolution: Victor Papanek, His Time and Why It All Still Matters (EN)

22.11. | 18.30-19.30  foreign language

The 1960s and early 1970s weren't just the era of hippies and student revolt. It was also a time when the role of design was critically reassessed and its political and social purpose redefined. While designers like Victor Papanek called for a holistic view of design, initiatives such as the Italian group "Global Tools" propagated more radical and experimental approaches. In her talk, Alison J. Clarke, co-curator of the "Victor Papanek" exhibition, examines the era's tendencies and protagonists and reflects on their continued relevance today.

The talk will take place at the Vitra Design Museum.
