Fall 2019

Radical, extreme, classic, egocentric manipulation of past

Design can be many things,- functional, sustainable, comfortable, aesthetic, conceptual. Design can be a tool to tell stories about our present, the political landscape, the climate, gender, identity, and it can be a tool for change. Design can stage our behaviour, ether consciously or unconsciously. Design can be a navigator through our lives, and together with Anna Aagaard Jensen, a graduate from The Design Academy Eindhoven, the students were asked to navigate, manipulate and radicalise a piece of classic design through their radicale/extreme/classic egotist. A week and a half of lots of explorations and deliberations in regards to what design is and can do, was presented at an exhibition at FourBoxes.
