Ethics & Aesthetics in Design – Teaching Design Theory in Dessau

08/2012

I am very happy to have received the offer to teach the class “Ethics & Aesthetics in Design” in the design department of the University of Applied Sciences Dessau. It is a great chance to plant good seeds in the minds of the designers of the future. “Designers are dangerous” Otl Aicher says in his book “the world as a design”. Because they are critical, they want to improve things and they investigate, research, dig to the ground. I hope to make them even more dangerous in terms of a critical approach to the world of production and cosumption as it is and to make them understand the responsibility they have in shaping a future we all want to live in.
