An diesem Tag spricht unser Professor Lars Harmsen über seine Erfahrungen während seines Lehraufenthaltes in Dubai.
In Spring 2018 Prof. Lars Harmsen took a close-up look at the contemporary design scene of Dubai while teaching at the American University of Sharjah. The city and the whole region, originally a piece of desert sparsely populated by Bedouins, is now transforming itself rapidly into a center, if not the world’s greatest center, of trade, finance, and tourism—and moreover—culture! Today, a new Arab world is being plotted and planned. The entire Gulf is teeming with initiatives—from the most public to the most private—to change and reinvent seemingly immutable rules, regimes, edicts, and assumptions, culminating, perhaps, in the stated intention to work more closely together. The Gulf states have a past, and they will have a future. The contours of that future are legible in the recently published Slanted issue.
Los geht es um 18 Uhr, am DONNERSTAG dem 06.12.2018 in der Aula des FB Design.
