Rethink! @ designtransfer Berlin

Last Friday, our Rethink!-Exhibition opened in Berlin at designtransfer at the UDK. To begin with the ‘Gender-Talk’, PHD candidates Fred Meyer-Menzel and Michelle Christensen discussed gender issues and perspectives in design with Dr. Barbara Sandow and Prof. Dr. Uta Brandes. The talk continued with the participation of the audience, pointing out once more how deeply all those gender stereotypes are rooted in us, even though specific cases are open to interpretation if and how gender (un)sensitive an object can be regarded.

 

The exhibition grew with four exhibits by UDK students, and was opened with a short introduction by Prof. Dr. Uta Brandes and the performance of ‘amorphé’. The exhibition will be open 28. April – 15. May, Di – Fr, 10 – 18o’clock. Ilka Schauberg, head of designtransfer, and her team were so fun and easy to work with, thank you very much for the wonderful time in Berlin!
