Brutal Beauty

Violence and Contemporary Design

Whether in political conflicts or conflicts in everyday life – the subject of violence is ever-present. Against the background of international terrorism and the current streams of refugees from war zones, the subject is more topical than ever. But how do designers deal with violence? What responsibility do they bear, and which possibilities for action do they open up in this highly dynamic process? The publication introduces a whole new generation of designers whose designs and strategies are making violence visible in order to take a stance against the often devastating worldwide developments now and in the future.
