Transdisciplinary Design. Essays from the Folkwang University of Arts
Folkwang University of the Arts, Essen
6 – 7 July 2017
According to the initiators of this event, these so-called “wicked problems” can no longer be solved by following a single discipline, but call for interdisciplinary collaboration and the combination of theory and practice. The symposium summarises the findings of students and teachers from their work on transdisciplinary processes in the design programme Heterotopia. The occasion for the symposium is the publication of the volume “Transdisciplinary Design. Essays of the Folkwang University of the Arts” by Alan Shapiro, Marion Digel and Irmi Wachendorff, and the exhibition with the same title will take place alongside the symposium.
To participate in the symposium, interested parties can register by 26 June 2017 by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
