As MCBW’s main event platform, the MCBW FORUM shaped the profile of the design week substantially. Visitors were fascinated and inspired by the international conferences, talks, workshops, and exhibitions that followed the claim Visions for Economy.
In quest of answers and new perspectives, numerous topics related to the economy, design, technology, sustainability, and society were discussed in much detail at the Old Congress Hall in Munich. Valuable contributions by the Netherlands, this year’s MCBW partner country, included the exhibitions Dutch Design Awards and OFF THE GRID. Several German and Dutch designers, scientists, and philosophers participated in the MCBW Lectures at the MCBW FORUM to deliberate about design and ethics.
