State of Design, Berlin
Vollgutlager, Alte Kindl Brauerei, Berlin
1– 4 June 2017
The festival uses different formats to show design in all its complexity and provide “adequate and sustainable answers” to current social questions through dialogue between different design approaches. Thus, the two central exhibitions “Alles Neu, Nieuwe German Gestaltung # 006” and “Total Change, Nieuwe Global Gestaltung # 001” will be complemented by presentations of national and international projects, lectures, workshops, and evenings against the background of the radical and experimental potential of (German) design alongside its traditional, industrial origins. “Total change, Nieuwe Global Gestaltung #001” is based on a project by Max Borka, since revised for the festival. In 2012, his collection of 100 projects provided an overview of social design. The current festival now presents and discusses what happened to them and the future-oriented design strategies they point to. You can find the complete programme here.
