A New Attitude of Design

Design shapes our social behaviours and attitudes. On the occasion of the current exhibition, we invite you to join us in a discussion about the works of women designers and their influence in calling for systemic change in society. Alice Rawsthorn, author of »Design as an Attitude« (2018) and co-founder of Design Emergency, is committed to fostering diversity and inclusion in design; Matylda Krzykowski  is a curator and designer of formats and environments for systemic change. Hosted by curator Viviane Stappmanns, they discuss their research on design as an agent of trans-formation and equality.
