Basislager Demokratie

How can we develop our democracy? And what contribution can design make as a creative discipline? These are the questions that the Base Camp Democracy is addressing in the context of the exhibition "Friedrich von Borries. Politics of Design. Design of Politics", which can be seen from 29 November 2018 to 29 September 2019 in Die Neue Sammlung - The Design Museum in Munich. The base camp Democracy is not a final result, but the starting point for a cooperation between The New Collection - The Design Museum, the HFBK Hamburg and the Federal Agency for Civic Education: a thought process in the form of interviews, discussions and workshops.

Friedrich von Borris invited me to discuss four aspects of democracy with him: symbolism, organisation, everyday life and reference space.
