let's explore! How design, art, technology and science face the future.


What happens when designers leave their studios and the city becomes a lab? What happens when a physicist becomes an artist? And when technology meets poetry? In this lecture David Hamers (Reader City and Countryside, Design Academy Eindhoven) explores how design, art, technology and science each in their in own way deal with what they think is real and unreal, possible and impossible, probable and improbable. David will focus on what happens when boundaries between the different domains are crossed.

About the speakers



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.
