Jul/Aug 2019

Order Magazine

The East of Germany is not only the focus of current political debates, but also of the spotlights two anniversaries shine on the region. In 2019, Germany has been (exuberantly) celebrating the Bauhaus centenary, and in many places people rejoice over the fall of the Berlin Wall, which took place 30 years ago. Reason enough to give an overview of the current design scene in this region in form 284.

Region of Design
Germany’s East

Text: Stephan Ott

All too often, there is still talk of “us” and “them”, although “[o]f course […] people in the East thought about flexible accommodation at the same time as people in the West or in Japan”, as photographer Wiebke Loeper states, among other things, in an interview.
