Vis­i­tor mag­net MCBW Forum 2016


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.
