Bauhaus 4.0 meets communication design & illustration

Design and politics in times of fake news

Author: Julia Kahl

Aren’t designers always authors in editorial design? How does digitalization change the tension between editors, journalists and designers? Isn’t truth now a question of perspective and which kind of responsibility does illustration, photography and magazine design have? Does the Bauhaus help us to develop an attitude?

At the panel discussion on 13 June 2019 in Dortmund we will discuss the democratic potential of design in times of digitalization in a pointed and provocative way. Among others with the editorial designer and Professor Rüdiger Quass von Deyen, the draughtsman Raban Ruddigkeit, the editor of the design magazine Slanted, Lars Harmsen, Professor Andine Müller. Special Guest is the illustrator Tim Weiffenbach. Moderation: Boris Kochan and Ulrich Müller.

An evening on a small scale for designers, clients and those interested in design in the paper warehouse of Freytag & Petersen GmbH & Co. KG – we would like to discuss this with you! The greeting will be given by Annika Siems, member of the board of the illustrator organisation Annika Siems, and Claudia Jericho, managing director of CREATVE.NRW.
