[ENG] September 6-7 Designboost presents DesignBoost - Made in [Arnhem] in Arnhem, Holland through a variety of integrated BoostChat (workshops) and BoostTalk (lectures). We will invite Boosters from Holland and all over the world which represent the true frontline within design in its broadest context. All are authorities in their field of expertise and our selection reflects the principle that design is multidisciplinary reaching way beyond the obvious. Our carefully selected Boosters will interact on the theme "Design for Life" over two days with companies, organisations and institutions. BoostChat is for invited only while the BoostTalk is open for public as well. When it comes to sustainable life there are probably many things that needs to be questioned, left could very well be right. The objective of DesignBoost - Made in [Arnhem] is to make everybody question, reach awareness and think in new paths when it comes to creating better lives for lots of people. This is after all the ultimate goal for all design.
DesignBoost - Made in [Arnhem] is a collaboration between Designboost, Museum voor Moderne Kunst Arnhem, ArtEZ hogeschool voor de kunsten, Premsela and City of Arnhem.
[ENG] In this year's "Bankruptcy of Architecture", the workshop will investigate the local conditions as a particular moment of a financial crisis. Can the crisis determine some strategies for architecture? The particular Greek moment takes an emblematic form: a positive, constructive look to this bankrupted world we built is needed. At the contrary some very strong concepts need to be redefined, such the concept of "nature" or the "politics of reuse". Some changes of the value systems have to be taken under consideration for the function of a workshop that always related art to architecture through theoretical investigation.
