Book launch ‘What Design Can’t Do’
By Silvio Lorusso, at Huidenclub Rotterdam
Join us on Saturday 18 November for the launch of new book by Silvio Lorusso entitled What Design Can’t Do, followed by a discussion with Silvio and Rotterdam based collective Extra-Practice and Clara Balaguer.
Design is broken. Young and not-so-young designers are becoming increasingly aware of this. Many feel impotent: they were told they had the tools to make the world a better place, but instead the world takes its toll on them. This book probes the disillusionment that permeates design. To depict this disheartening crisis, he crafts a new critical vocabulary for readers to build upon.
There will also be delicious tajines by De Duurzame Wereldkeuken available after the book launch, as the opening of Occult Economics begins.
