Google gives us the bigger picture, it shows us every street corner, every building, each passer-by, every answer to every question. This ultimate machine has no limit: in information, services, data and visuals. Is Google the story that helps us to map our way, the perfect assistant for all our creations? Or is it expanding so rapidly and are its workings so oblique we should be wary to use its services?

Design Debates

Eindhoven strives to be the Design Capital of Europe. These ambitions make sense, with a flourishing design network, impressive design and art galleries, a smart and creative region and of course the world famous Dutch Design Week.
A Design Capital needs a platform to discuss, feed the design climate, to cross boundaries with other disciplines and of course connect all players (and players-to-be) within the field. Therefore Eindhoven-based cultural and educational institutions Design Academy Eindhoven, MU, The New Institute, Capital D founded the Design Debates platform. The platform is supported by critical friends: Baltan Laboratories, Alice, Capital D. Every month Design Debates Eindhoven will host an afternoon debate at the Designhuis in Eindhoven.
