Postfaktische Gestaltung / Post-truth Design (BA & MA)
Design between Illusion and Disillusion
/ The pair of words Postfaktisch/Post-truth will be our starting point to examine their meaning in the field of design. What does it mean to do design with an emphasis on emotion, rather than on truth and facts? What is untrue about emotions? What are facts? What are facts and products in world of settings, sceneries and scenographies?
We will delve into the long history of postfaktisch/post-truth design, before we’ll re-emerge to work on our own concepts and products in the postfaktisch/post-truth context. Enriched by a theoretic examination and research of the topic, we will decipher the mechanisms of postfaktisch/post-truth design and will use the findings and rule sets for our own work. We will fact-check our reality; we will work subversive; we will create our own new facts for new and old thruths.
