ADC Design Experience 2018
Neues Schloss, Stuttgart
13 – 14 September 2018
Creative minds from the field of design will gather at the fourth ADC Design Experience in Stuttgart in September this year. This year’s theme is “Humanity Design” and the question of the human dimension of design in a time of digital autonomy.
Is the designer a future generator or solution provider, antagonist or ally of digital “encroachment” and artificial intelligence? How is the relationship between man and machine changing? These are just some of the questions facing designers today. The ADC Design Experience brings together scientists, artists, architects, and founders of companies and agencies who deal with issues relating to the future in design discourse. A total of 15 speakers are invited to discuss existential questions of design and the question of individual creativity. Attending speakers include artist and illustrator Mark Gmehling, head of experience and usability at ING-DiBa bank, Franziska Weissbach, and Florian Röhrbein, group leader intelligent systems at Kärcher, as well as students and graduates sharing solutions and controversial visions. Friday is dedicated to practice, and will be full of seminars on topics such as the “Creative Environment” in which we are likely to live and work in the future, and the nature of a space that promotes creativity and communication. The ADC consists of over 700 members from diverse areas of creative communication, and organises congresses, seminars, lectures, and other events. The regular ticket price for the convention is 299 euros. Students pay 29 euros on evidence of a student card.
