Confrontations Discussion Group

location Chicago Design Museum | 1 PM-3 PM Saturday 25 July 2015 (CDT)

The Confrontations discussion group begins where the design confronts its own boundaries. Each meeting will address a different constellation of unsettled issues within contemporary design, informed by provocative combinations of short texts. Successive conversations may build off each other or degenerate into total confusion. These confrontations aim to provide a space for productive debate regarding the limitations, responsibilities, and possibilities of people who inhabit the undetermined space between laborer, messenger, and content creator.

Please come having read the following short and freely avaliable texts:
