The publication Was bedeutet für mich Designkritik? (“What does design criticism mean to me?”) is dedicated to a subject that is currently given little attention. Neither the public nor the design disipline itself deals with criticism in depth—unlike, for example, visual arts, literature, music, etc. In order to counteract this, people who work in design in various functions were asked the same question: What does design criticism mean to you? Twenty personal answers show how relevant the critical discourse is with and for design.
The book is published by Prima.Publikationen (Stuttgart / Basel), a young publishing house for design and artists books, founded by Ephraim Ebertshäuser and Marina Gärtner of studio it’s mee who designed the book.
