Product information

Vitra Victor Papanek.

"Victor Papanek: The Politics of Design" provides a comprehensive overview of the work of the designer, author and activist Victor J. Papanek.

His most important work, the educational guide "Design for the Real World", published in 1971, is as central as his designs and his commitment to social minorities, the so-called Third World, and the thoughtful use of natural resources.

This book documents numerous photographs, artistic works and designs, objects, drawings, letters and other material, some of which are published here for the first time. Papanek's close contacts with contemporaries such as Richard Buckminster Fuller, George Nelson and Marshall McLuhan are also investigated. Contemporary work by the likes of Tomás Saraceno, Catherine Sarah Young, Gabriel Ann Maher, Thomas Thwaites and Forensic Architecture, as well as Flui Coletivo and Questtonó, rounds out the publication, demonstrating that Papanek's interpretation of design as a tool for social transformation is as relevant as ever. and continues to shape the debate on social design, critical design and design thinking.
