The exhibition ‘Expanding Design’ marks the launch of a new Master course in Industrial Design at the Zurich University of Art. Join us for the exhibition opening with drinks on Friday 1st December from 5 PM – 9 PM in the Aktionsraum at ZHdK Toni-Areal.
Master Industrial Design
Designers are often taught to frame every issue, no matter how complex, as a problem to be solved. By now it is pretty clear that the solutionist thinking of the last century is falling short to address current challenges caused by the lack of alternative social and ecological narratives. So what is the role of Industrial Design and how should design education reflect the shifting requirements of the design practice?
‘Expanding Design’ shows projects by influential creative practitioners and educators whose approach manages to straddle the imaginative and tangible potential of design. The exhibition sets a stage for students as well as professionals and acts as a point of departure for a new Master Industrial Design.
With Hisato Ogata (Takram), Robin Hoske and Felix Rasehorn (WINT Design Lab), Benedikt Groß (Moovel Lab), Johanna Schmeer, Fiona Raby and Anthony Dunne (Dunne & Raby)
