SAVE THE DATE: Design History Society-Conference MEMORY FULL? REIMAGINING THE RELATIONS BETWEEN DESIGN AND HISTORY

24.03.2021 | Hochschule für Gestaltung und Kunst

Against a background of multiple temporalities and ontologies for design, the conference MEMORY FULL? REIMAGINING THE RELATIONS BETWEEN DESIGN AND HISTORY sets out to explore the relationship between design and memory.

When a device reaches the limits of its storage, it typically sends a “Memory Full” warning that serves both as annoyance and incitement for action. Responses include upgrading the physical drive, relinquishing content to an immaterial “cloud,” editing and deleting, or constraining an otherwise unfettered desire to archive everything. Actions like these can be read as a metaphor for how histories of design are shaped.

Against a background of multiple temporalities and ontologies for design, the conference MEMORY FULL? REIMAGINING THE RELATIONS BETWEEN DESIGN AND HISTORY sets out to explore the relationship between design and memory. It presents reflection on the entanglements embodied by design between futurity and amnesia, critical discussion on data cultures, and debate around emerging approaches to the designed environment.

For the first time, the DHS Annual Conference will take place fully digital.
