For the sixth time the Wilhelm Braun-Feldweg Prize for Design Critical Texts has been awarded – with a higher participation than ever since. The prize promotes design students and alumnis whose texts have made a contribution to the design discourse with regards to content and style. At the same time it is a platform and experimental ground for young critical designers in the form of a competition.
At DMY Lucas Verweij will discuss the background and current developments of the design discourse and its new form in digital media with two former awardees and the chairman of the jury.
