gewerk in the garden <b>#1 immersion</b>
Speaker Katharina Erben
The event series gewerk in the garden serves as a platform for culture enthusiasts, designers and cultural workers and takes place in the garden of our studio in Berlin.
In the summer of 2022, a total of three events are planned, each with a different thematic focus.
We will invite various speakers from different cultural fields, who offer impulsive lectures, readings or workshops as a theoretical or application-related basis for an interactive discourse with our guests, and point out new perspectives or developments.
Why is this important to us?
Design in general and exhibition design and architecture in particular are, as we know, always an expression of social developments and can, on the other hand, influence our modes of action and the way we perceive things. Cultural, social and political processes affect every design discipline. This makes it crucial to ask certain questions in design continuously.
Questions such as: Who is being addressed? And maybe even more important: who is not?
How is design communicating? Are ecological and economic factors sufficiently taken into account? And how do current events, discourses and trends change the design disciplines, the cultural field and creative work?
As an interdisciplinary or transdisciplinary design office, we must ask these questions and exchange ideas – as the word “trans” (Latin: “beyond”, “over”, “across”) already indicates. In other words: We have to transfer ideas and concepts to other perspectives and contexts and make them transparent.
Together with our guests, we do not only want to discuss current issues and tendencies, but also develop questions and topics together. gewerk in the garden intends to create a platform from which a progressive dialogue can emerge.
A summary of the subjects and perspectives discussed at the respective events will be published on our website afterwards.
