Library for Social Design
26 April – 14 May 2017
Actually, the library is subject to an on-going discussion about books in order to continue tackling the subject and to expose readers to the latest developments. Its focus is to confront design with its social responsibility so that students are not only made aware of this, but also, ideally provide inspiration and stimulation for developing new methods and approaches to research. Currently, the library is a mobile, temporary institution and pops up in various places and in different situations. It is being presented to the public for the first time in MAK in Vienna.
In addition, on 2 May 2017, as part of the exhibition in MAK, there will be a discussion between Friedrich von Borries, architect and professor of design theory, Ilija Trojanow, author, and Thomas Feichtner, designer.
