Design in times of anger
One of the duties of teaching is to develop the inaudible
In a socially and technologically troubled world, design teaching and the role of professionals necessarily have to change. It is not a question of evolution anymore but a question of revolution. Design as we understood it until now is dead.
With these words, Wolkowicz will introduce us to his conceptual universe and will invite us to reflect on a field that he knows very well, in which he works since more than thirty years. He will introduce us to his endeavour and experience in the Buenos Aires University and will raise new horizons in a talk that will thrill educators and students.
