Art and design in the expanded field: artists, designers, and theorists discuss the consequences of design as a self-referential practice, and the aesthetics of life-world in the art context with a special focus on furniture.
The publication proposes three approaches to the expanded definition of design today and its relation to the art context:
- Distinction: with texts by Tido von Oppeln, Mateo Kries, Klaus Spechtenhauser, Burkhard Meltzer, and Sven Lütticken
- Participation: with texts by Alexander García Düttmann, Monika Kritzmöller, Jennifer Allen, Judith Welter, and a discussion with Martin Boyce, Frédéric Dedelley, and Max Borka
- Production: interviews with Jurgen Bey, Matthew Smith, Mamiko Otsubo, Martino Gamper, Martin Boyce, Sofia Lagerkvist / Front Design, Andrea Zittel, Jerszy Seymour, Florian Slotawa, David Renggli, and Julia Lohmann.
Published on the occasion of a research collaboration of the Institute of Critical Theory (Zurich University of the Arts) and the Migros Museum für Gegenwartskunst, Zurich.
