Werkbericht (Work Report) No. 9 — translations 02

wanderlust. changing visual identities
With the ?translations? symposia hosted at School of Design Mainz, Germany the Department of Communication Design analyses and discusses current design issues in regular intervals. The most recent project ?wanderlust. changing visual identities? (German title ?fernweh. positionen zur identität im design ?) reviews the positions between near and far, the known and the unknown. Which individual strategies are adopted by designers in light of an increasingly globalised culture that consumes individual statements at fast pace? Are visual design concepts in any way able to contribute to shaping cultural identity?

Contributors are: Ruedi Baur, Erik Spiekermann, Florian Pfeffer, Vier5, Bastard-Project, K&K, Mark Terkessidis, Johannes Bergerhausen, Thomas Manss, Filip Bla¸ek, Rodrigo Castañeda, Dr. Petra Eisele, Anna-Lisa Schönecker, Barbara Knorpp.
