Ich bin ein Berliner

I will be, for just 24 hours unfortunately, dropping by Designmai, a yearly design event in Berlin, to be part of a panel named“What they hate about the world of design”. As the organiser of the panel Mell Byars describes the conversation as follows:

” I wrote to a number of journalists, museum curators, manufacturers, designers, teachers, and others. I asked them: “What do you hate about today’s world of design?”

I offered them anonymity. If I had not, they would not have replied. I received a torrent of angry (in some cases), annoyed (in other cases), and generally disappointed (in others). Still others made intelligent suggestions. ”

This should be, in anycase, a very interesting conversation and hopefully engages the public as well.
