DESIGN NITE & MASTERCLASS – MARTÍ GUIXÉ: DESIGN AS TOOL FOR EMPOWERMENT

MAK – Österreichisches Museum für angewandte Kunst / Gegenwartskunst, Wirtschaftsagentur Wien, IDRV – Institute of Design Research Vienna

2.10.2018, 12pm–5pm

The Vienna Business Agency, MAK, and StadtFabrik invite participants to a workshop and a lecture by Martí Guixé. The Catalan native is an “anti-de- signer” and espouses a design praxis that changes the way we work, think, and live as part of a process. His projects have intensively examined the theme of food and design. In his projects and publications (“Social Movement Design Book” and “Food Design”), Guixé outlines a sustainable role for design with regard to how it affects ideological, ecological, and sociocultural habits. Seeing design as a tool for empowerment is the first step toward positive change of existing behaviors. Guixé will identify strategies for this change together with the StadtFabrik team and work- shop participants. StadtFabrik, a cooperative project of the Vienna Business Agency with the MAK, curated by IDRV – Institute of Design Re- search Vienna, works for the discovery and visualization of urban potential in the creative economy. 

Workshop: Tue 2.10., 12pm–5pm
Limited number of participants
