Depot Basel wants to add a further facet to the discussion that repeatedly arose during the publication and exhibition CHANGES-CHANCEN by screening the tape of a discussion which was held during the series Jeudis design du mudac à l’ECAL. The screening was held on 15.12. at 15:00 at Depot Basel.
What is the purpose of an education in design? What are the functions of the schools? What should a designer’s work entail today?
Jan Boelen, director of the Master of Social Design at the Design Academy Eindhoven, Anthony Dunne, head of the course Master of Design Interactions at the Royal College of Art in London and Alexis Georgacopoulos, director of ECAL in Lausanne, present the educational concepts of their schools in a joint discussion. The discussion was moderated by Claire Favre-Maxwell, curator of the current exhibition Mastering Design at the mudac in Lausanne, which is currently exhibiting projects of students and graduates of the Design Academy Eindhoven and the Royal College of Art until February 9th 2014.
