ON GESTALTUNG lecture series | weißensee kunsthochschule berlin | Excellence Cluster “Matters of Activity” Humboldt Universität zu Berlin

“The capacity of Gestaltung is not reserved for design or the arts. It underlies all cognition and knowledge. The structures of our imaginative powers and the grammar of our thinking are based on the structures of our perception and the scope of our capacity for articulation and action. This lecture series will take a closer look at the origins of creativity and how the creative forces can be trained and renewed.” (Jörg Petruschat)

As part of the seminar “Theorien der Gestaltung” we have invited different representatives of a new and extended understanding of the design concept who open our perception towards the role and responsibility we step into as we become designers. It has been an honor to participate in making this lecture series happen and it has been a great eye and heart opener for all the participants.
