description
Trust in the digital age is one of the most pressing issues of our time. In a series of collaborative workshops, the Academy of Fine Arts and Design, Bratislava (AFAD), and the University of Applied Arts, Vienna, have been working on interpretations, interventions, and objects dealing with the role of design in the digital age and the responsibilities of designers regarding trust in new technologies. Topics range from multi-disciplinary relations between economics, sociology, and information technology to copyright vs. open-source design, social design (socially responsible design, Big Data and data protection, manipulation of reality, authenticity and forgery), and design strategies on the interface between human and non-human entities, including their relation to education, entertainment, hygiene, lifestyle, and mobility. This international collaboration between students gave rise to several concepts, from which three projects have been developed for presentation at the MAK FORUM in Vienna in 2020 as part of the Project EU Interreg VA SK-AT “Design & Innovation.” OPENING Tue, 3 March 2020, 7 p.m.
