The new issue of “Texte zur Kunst” is dedicated to the topic of “design”. All contributions agree on the diagnosis that this concept is currently being reevaluated in the fields of visual arts, aesthetics, architecture, urbanism, and product design. Contrary to popular diagnoses and narratives of decline the current issue seeks to provide arguments for an understanding of design as a relevant practice for solving social crises. Thus grasped, design may also be regarded as a crucial point of reference for current artistic practices, operating with a reconstruction or an actualization of the formal languages of modern design and its critical, if not emancipatory potential.

Plus reviews from New York, Berlin, Vienna, Zurich, Paris, Cologne, Kassel, Nürnberg, Bremen, Stuttgart, Braunschweig and Gwangju

Exclusive new artists’ editions:
Maria Lassnig, Tobias Rehberger
