It's Not a Garden TableArt and Design in the Expended Field

It\'s Not a Garden Table  - It\'s Not a Garden Table
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.
Edited by Jörg Huber, Burkhard Meltzer, Heike Munder, Tido von Oppeln.
