To engage fully with new conceptions of design, new kinds of exhibition-making and writing are needed to make sense of its unfamiliar—and even invisible—qualities. For, just as design is atomising, so are the institutions and formats of our rapidly changing media landscape. Publishing, museums, and academia are reconceiving themselves beyond the book and the building as reconfigurable brands, communities, and platforms. Students of curating and design, therefore, need to be agile in how they negotiate this terrain, and fluent in multiple media—that range from augmented reality videography and choose-your-own-adventure chat-bot coding to open-source collaborative editing.

Join us at Design Academy Eindhoven on January 16, 2018 for a chance to meet tutors and students of the MA in Design Curating & Writing, tour the facilities, and participate in a seminar discussion about the new tools, formats and ideas being experimented with in the programme. Please register here.

If you already know you want to apply for admission in September 2018, then bring your portfolio of writing samples for the Fast Lane selection process.
