For this year’s Wintersession platform MAKE. is collaborating with materials researcher Garðar Eyjólfsson. Garðar is known for bringing together contextual, material and narrative research in his work as a means to explore & translate zeitgeist topics. We know Garðar from the Iceland University of the Arts (Burg Partner University) where he is the program director of the MA Design: Explorations & Translations program.

In this Conflicted Matter workshop we will explore (energy) industries in Halle locally through the critical lens of multiple narratives in order to seek out, document and embrace new possibilities between humans, technology, culture and the environment.

Initiated by platform MAKE. – Prof. Aart van Bezooijen, Ulrike Mäder, Lorenz Ebersbach

recycling design award 2019
The Recycling Design Award is an annual competition for product items made of waste or leftover materials. They are inviting all creative minded (un)professionals to submit their visionary, original and sustainable artifacts. The focus is to discover which overlooked and waste resources could be turned into future products and/or even future jobs (people creating those items). Here is a video with last year’s contributions exhibited at the Marta Herford Museum.

For more information and registrations visit www.recyclingboerse.org
– Deadline: 15 July 2019 –
