The Visual Event


Is it possible to understand graphic design as a practice beyond an object-centric approach? A practice beyond the conception and production of well-designed and printed artefacts? Which other potentials should be considered integral to design as an activity? The Visual Event explores the question of how such an extended practice could be considered in relation to design and tests the idea of the “visual event” – such as that broached by temporal and situational practice – from various perspectives of visual culture. The project compiles numerous contributions by artists, academics, designers, architects and students of the System-Design Class at the Academy of Visual Arts Leipzig.
