Design inter­twines with politics

Redesign­ing a fate­ful affair

How great it would be if the design indus­try gained more influ­ence in pol­i­tics and con­tributed to an open, diverse soci­ety and a liv­able future with its cre­ative skills. And, as an “enzyme for inno­va­tion,” rec­on­ciled econ­o­my and sus­tain­abil­i­ty. With the draft of a “Design Pol­i­cy”, Ger­many joins the world­wide move­ment to bring pol­i­tics and design into con­ver­sa­tion and to joint­ly for­mu­late goals which ensure that change can final­ly succeed.

After an intro­duc­tion to the top­ic by the Pres­i­dent of the Deutsch­er Design­tag, Boris Kochan, the CEO of Good Design Aus­tralia, Bran­don Gien, will give a vivid account of how well this has already been achieved in his coun­try. The key points of the pro­pos­al for a “Design Pol­i­cy for Ger­many” will be pre­sent­ed by the Man­ag­ing Direc­tor of bay­ern design, Nadine Vicen­ti­ni — which will then be dis­cussed first on the pan­el and then with the audience.

The event is a coop­er­a­tion of Deutsch­er Design­tag by bay­ern design and is part of the munich cre­ative busi­ness week (mcbw) 2023.
