postcarbon. Green Design 3.0

GREEN­LAB, the lab for sus­tain­able de­sign strate­gies at Weißensee Acade­my of Art Ber­lin, will start the sum­mer semester 2014 with a sym­po­si­um en­ti­tled »post­car­bon – De­sign for a Sus­tain­able Lusa­tia«.

The sym­po­si­um will fo­cus on how de­sign­ers may con­tribute to the re­gio­n­al de­vel­op­ment of Lusa­tia. How can the cul­tu­r­al and na­t­u­ral re­sources of the re­gion be pro­tect­ed and fur­ther de­vel­oped? Can tra­di­tio­n­al el­e­ments be in­ter­pret­ed in a con­tem­po­rary way, and trans­formed in­to in­ter­est­ing and sus­tain­able con­cepts, prod­ucts, pro­cess­es, or ser­vices? So­cial de­sign, cir­cu­lar flow economies, crafts­man­ship and lo­cal pro­duc­tion, co-de­sign, ma­te­rial ac­tivism, and food de­sign will be ad­dressed. In ad­di­tion to ex­perts from Lusa­tia, who will in­tro­duce their re­gion, in­ter­na­tio­n­al­ly ac­tive de­sign­ers and en­trepreneurs will of­fer new per­spec­tives on sus­tain­able re­gio­n­al de­vel­op­ment. St­ef­fi Sil­ber­mann will give a talk about "De­vel­op­ment sto­ries of a de­sign trav­eller".

Tues­day and Wed­nes­day, April 15 and 16, 2014, 10 am to 5 pm
Venue: Au­la, Weißensee Acade­my of Art Ber­lin, Bührings­traße 20, 13086 Ber­lin
