Guided tour »Victor Papanek: The Politics of Design« (DE)

With the exhibition »Victor Papanek: The Politics of Design«, running from 29 September to 10 March 2019, the Vitra Design Museum will present the first large retrospective focussing on the designer, author, and activist Victor J. Papanek (1923–1998). Papanek was one of the twentieth century’s most influential pioneers of a socially and ecologically oriented approach to design beginning in the 1960s. His key work, »Design for the Real World« (1971), remains the most widely read book about design ever published. In it, Papanek makes a plea for inclusion, social justice, and sustainability – themes of greater relevance for today’s design than ever before. The exhibition includes high-value exhibits such as drawings, objects, films, manuscripts, and prints, some of which have never before been presented. These are complimented by works of Papanek’s contemporaries from the 1960s to 1980s, including George Nelson, Richard Buckminster Fuller, Marshall McLuhan, or the radical design initiative »Global Tools«. Contemporary works from the areas of critical and social design provide insight into Papanek’s lasting impact.

Guided tour »Victor Papanek: The Politics of Design« (DE)

With the exhibition »Victor Papanek: The Politics of Design«, running from 29 September to 10 March 2019, the Vitra Design Museum will present the first large retrospective focussing on the designer, author, and activist Victor J. Papanek (1923–1998). Papanek was one of the twentieth century’s most influential pioneers of a socially and ecologically oriented approach to design beginning in the 1960s. His key work, »Design for the Real World« (1971), remains the most widely read book about design ever published. In it, Papanek makes a plea for inclusion, social justice, and sustainability – themes of greater relevance for today’s design than ever before. The exhibition includes high-value exhibits such as drawings, objects, films, manuscripts, and prints, some of which have never before been presented. These are complimented by works of Papanek’s contemporaries from the 1960s to 1980s, including George Nelson, Richard Buckminster Fuller, Marshall McLuhan, or the radical design initiative »Global Tools«. Contemporary works from the areas of critical and social design provide insight into Papanek’s lasting impact.

Basel Museum Night: Material Matters! | SPECIAL (DE/EN/FR)

Whether biodegradable plastic, aerospace proven carbon fibre, or laminated papier-mâché: an infinite number of materials are used in design! At the same time, the right choice of material decides if design is participatory and sustainable, as Victor Papanek called for. In workshops, special tours, and events, the Museumsnacht will highlight unusual materials. Co-organized by the HFT Stuttgart, visitors to the exhibition »125 cm³ Material« in the Schaudepot Lab can handle materials and have conversations with researchers.

Papanek (1923–1998). Papanek was one of the twentieth century’s most influential pioneers of a socially and ecologically oriented approach to design beginning in the 1960s. His key work, »Design for the Real World« (1971), remains the most widely read book about design ever published. In it, Papanek makes a plea for inclusion, social justice, and sustainability – themes of greater relevance for today’s design than ever before. The exhibition includes high-value exhibits such as drawings, objects, films, manuscripts, and prints, some of which have never before been presented. These are complimented by works of Papanek’s contemporaries from the 1960s to 1980s, including George Nelson, Richard Buckminster Fuller, Marshall McLuhan, or the radical design initiative »Global Tools«. Contemporary works from the areas of critical and social design provide insight into Papanek’s lasting impact.

Guided tour »Victor Papanek: The Politics of Design« (DE)

With the exhibition »Victor Papanek: The Politics of Design«, running from 29 September to 10 March 2019, the Vitra Design Museum will present the first large retrospective focussing on the designer, author, and activist Victor J. Papanek (1923–1998). Papanek was one of the twentieth century’s most influential pioneers of a socially and ecologically oriented approach to design beginning in the 1960s. His key work, »Design for the Real World« (1971), remains the most widely read book about design ever published. In it, Papanek makes a plea for inclusion, social justice, and sustainability – themes of greater relevance for today’s design than ever before. The exhibition includes high-value exhibits such as drawings, objects, films, manuscripts, and prints, some of which have never before been presented. These are complimented by works of Papanek’s contemporaries from the 1960s to 1980s, including George Nelson, Richard Buckminster Fuller, Marshall McLuhan, or the radical design initiative »Global Tools«. Contemporary works from the areas of critical and social design provide insight into Papanek’s lasting impact.

Dieter Landenberger - The Myth of the Bulli | TALK (DE)

The arrival of the Volkswagen Transporter, known as the »Bulli«, in 1950 marked the beginning of a new era in Wolfsburg. A workhorse of Germany’s economic miracle, this pop-cultural icon was colourfully painted and converted to a camper, making the models T1 and T2 into true cult objects among alternative cultures. Dieter Landenberger,director of Volkswagen Heritage, discusses the history of the Transporter and explains how it became a symbol of our desires and wanderlust.
