The Museum für Gestaltung Zürich presents an exhibition “GLOBAL DESIGN” which will start from Februay 12, showing the effects that the globalized world has had on design since the 1970s and how design is developed for the globalized world.
It is based on a concept of design which includes architecture, graphics, media, fashion, product and industrial design just as much as the design of spheres of life or product processes. Beginning with global networking in the fields of communication, mobility, production, trade and capital, the focal themes are the presentation of globalization in relationship to regionalism, the container as the primary element of globalization, cultural transfer and global trends. Contributions from artists such as Thomas Demand, Fischli / Weiss, Armin Linke or Allan Sekula illustrate special phenomena of globalization.
