Bauhaus 4.0 meets design theory:

In the field of tension between design theory, theory and practice - to change the role of design in times of digitization

Author: Alex Staudt

Are digitization and globalization, as today’s major economic and social issues, perhaps comparable to the Industrial Revolution of the early 20th century? Can we use the utopian potential of the Bauhaus to find ways to adapt the design theory to the new demands? How can we exploit the expansion of the fields of work of designers completed in recent years and not fall into the trap of diluting the design concept beyond recognition? What is the correspondence to the demand for lifelong learning for a continuous education and training of professional designers, and what actually helps us with all these questions the design theory?

At the panel discussion of Bauhaus 4.0 meets design theory on February 19th, 2019 in Dieburg near Frankfurt they will discuss the tension between teaching and practice in times of digitization pointedly and provocatively. Et al with Susanne Lengyel, Frank Zebner, Valentin Heisters, Markus Frenzl, Rüdiger Pichler and the two moderators Ulrich Müller and Boris Kochan. Welcome by Ralph Habich and Nicolas Markwald.
