Design for every … one! The format Debut of the VIENNA DESIGN WEEK highlights excellent educational institutions in Austria and abroad. This year’s guest institution is the Institute for Education in the Arts of the Academy of Fine Arts Vienna. For the first time, a contribution in this series focuses on the teaching of design in urban spaces and collaborative contexts: The result of the students’ work is a specially conceived series of artistic-performative events and workshops – everything intended for participation – for emancipated (self-empowered) design. The focus is on sustainable and resilient design in an urban context. Alongside students, school pupils also get to act as experts – from snacks, scores, and critical city tours via experimental typography, to ideas for and discussions about a different world. Curtain up for PERFORMING CARE – PRACTICING DESIGN!

The workshop space in the Festival Headquarters in the GASSE was fitted out by IKEA.
