Symposium Graphic Design Museum in Paradiso
NB last chance to get tickets! The symposium is nearly sold out!
After last year's Me You And Everyone We Know Is A Curator, the Graphic Design Museum organizes another end of year symposium on Saturday 18th of december 2010. The museum asked me to compile the day's speakers, topics and overall theme again.
This year's title refers to the continuously expanding field of graphic design and the desire to remain on the move. The title is also inspired by the realm of the relational, as felt in many similar lyrics:
got to be there
i want it my way
here there everywhere
Bruce Mau once said: "When the outcome drives the process we will only ever go to where we’ve already been. If process drives outcome we may not know where we’re going, but we will know we want to be there." This quote was the reason for Stephanie Mc Ardle and her fellow MA graduates from London College of Communication to name their 2009 show I Don't Know where I'm going but I know I want to be there. The stenciled title poster below is by them.

WHAT USED TO BE A CULTURALLY DEFINED, CRAFTSMANSHIP
BASED PROFESSION HAS EVOLVED INTO A
POPULAR, DEMOCRATISED DISCIPLINE PERMEATING
ALL TYPES OF MEDIA. TODAY’S VISUAL COMMUNICATION
LANDSCAPE FUNCTIONS AS A BREEDING GROUND
FOR BOTH TEXT AND IMAGE, WHICH ARE PRODUCED
AND CONSUMED SIMULTANEOUSLY IN NETWORKED
LOOPS. CONTEMPORARY PRACTITIONERS GENERATE
THEIR OWN CONTEXT AND RULES, AND NAVIGATE
THE WORLD THROUGH AN ARRAY OF SAMPLED MEDIA,
METHODS, STYLES, AND IDEAS. NO ONE KNOWS
WHERE GRAPHIC DESIGN IS GOING, OR WHAT IT WILL
BE CALLED TOMORROW. WHAT WE DO KNOW IS THAT
IT’S ON THE MOVE.
Here's a preview of what will be shown and talked about next Saturday...
From top to bottom: Lust, Julian Roberts (Parc D'expositions), Kesselskramer Publishing (In Almost Every Picture), Dunne and Raby (Functional Fictions), Design for Wikileaks by Metahaven, Open Structures by Thomas Lommee, Paul Miller's last book, Stefan Sagmeister: Trying to Look Good Limits My Life.
