Victor Papanek: The Politics of Design

This exhibition is a collaboration with Vitra Design Museum, Barcelona Design Museum, Victor J. Papanek Foundation and University of Applied Arts Vienna, with a contribution from the German Federal Cultural Foundation.

This autumn, Design Museum Den Bosch presents the work of the visionary designer, critic and activist Victor Papanek (1923-1998). 

His famous book Design for the Real World: Human Ecology and Social Change (1970) represents a radical vision of design in which sustainability and social justice are more important than consumption and commerce. The exhibition shows both a retrospective of his work and the way in which young designers are working on these themes more than ever.
