d> design new strategies

A Cooperation of MAK & departure
In the newly developed formats departure/ MAK d>link, d>lab, and d>nite, renowned international design experts will enter into an exchange with representatives of Vienna’s creative industry to interrogate, challenge, and shape relations between design, industry, and society. Different events will provide an opportunity of looking out together for new
possibilities, interfaces, cooperations, and, eventually, fields of activity.
Strategies for the Future
The potential of design as a strategy of economic innovation and social change will be in the focus of the successful cooperation between the MAK and departure, the creative agency of the City of Vienna. In a joint initiative, the MAK with its historic mandate as a site of encounter between “Art and Industry” and departure with the objective to integrate cultural and creative achievements into the city’s economy, activate an exchange of creativity and the economy in order to respond to the complex social, economic, and ecological challenges of our time. In doing so, the “design> new strategies” program series provides a platform to usher in new types of cooperations as the search for sustainable economic models calls for approaches that transcend boundaries between disciplines and traditional ideas of incompatibilities. Future-oriented models involve strategic partnerships in the areas of creation, research, and production. Design is seen as a strategy in itself, which as an intercreative practice helps conceptualize, communicate, and realize new cultures of products and services.
