“The belief that a humane environment can be created through design is one of the fundamental errors of the pioneers of the modern movement. People's environments are only to a small extent visible and subject to formal design; to a far greater extent, however, they consist of organizational and institutional factors. Changing these is a political task.”
Lucius Burckhardt

Two texts and four watercolor paintings with a foreword by Bazon Brock.

The open-ended publication series Studienhefte Problemorientiertes Design SPOD makes historical and contemporary reflections on the social and political dimension of Design accessible. It is a collection of irregularly appearing texts that critically examine the practical, cultural, methodological and everyday functions of Design. The problem-oriented approach aims to link design to the contradictions, potentials and circumstances of reality.

Based on a critical examination of the possibilities and limitations of Design, alternative models of Design are outlined that contradict the established market-based design practice.
