Under the title "Prototyping Future" Amelie Goldfuss started the lecture series with the lecture "Hey - Watch OUT - It's the anthropocene!" And the following workshop.
Our guests this semester are globalized experts who, with and through their work, take a focused look at portions of the all-embracing and entropic complexity of the Anthropozoic era. The lecture series covers a broad spectrum of perspectives and strategies. Cooking together not only creates a bond between students and teachers, but also the lec- ture guests are involved in cooking. At the heart of the unconventional lecture series, as always, is the common meal.
Through their work, the guests are in clear relation to the theme 2017/18 of raum & designstrategien: BayWatch.
