Do we need a New School of Design? Discussion about the current debate on design education and the role of design as a scientific discipline.
The Bavarian State Ministry of Science has initiated a comprehensive amendment to the Higher Education Act, which calls for universities to develop new teaching and research structures of their own to allow for greater flexibility as well as more excellence. In response, the Bavarian design faculties have drafted a statement to ensure the future of design education. Together with representatives from colleges and universities, business, science, politics and research, this year’s Grantler’s Corner is addressing the current debate on design education and design research.
2014 initiated Sarah Dorkenwald and Hannes Gumpp the “Grantler’s Corner” as an informal discussion forum. The name is derived from “granteln”, Bavarian for grouching, and the democratic speaker’s corner.
The event is sponsored by bayern design and the Bavarian State Ministry of Economic Affairs, Regional Development and Energy.
