Among other things, design is always performance. The Medienhaus Lectures 2021 take a look at performance in design beyond the moment of presentation. Type, color, materiality, etc. are design elements that have their own performativity. The same is true for the human body. So could the design process be considered a performance? How diverse are the bodies involved? How differentiated is the body image in the field of design? And what are the performative effects on bodies of norms and rules derived from that? Performance! prompts the Medienhaus Lectures 2021 together with guests from design, art and theory to bring the body into play.
