HBK Braunschweig

15 – 16 June 2017


The Board of International Research in Design, or BIRD, invites visitors to the first occasion of its new conference format NERD (New Experimental Research in Design) Braunschweig University of Art (HBK). Visitors can expect presentations by international speakers on innovative and experimental research approaches.

Until recently, BIRD’s commitment was limited to publishing. Members supervised projects and texts from design research, which were then proposed to Birkhäuser Verlag for publication. With NERD, the platform has now been extended to allow researchers to speak directly to an interested audience. The topics of this first event include, for example, social transformation, sustainable urban development, participation, design, and time (also featured in form 265), or digital image worlds. Speakers from all over Europe as well as the US and India will present their questions and insights. Each lecture is followed by an opportunity for discussion, facilitating a fruitful exchange.


The conference is aimed at anyone who is interested in design, as well as representatives from universities and companies. Admission is free; please register by e-mail.
