Title: Design in the Expanded Field

Refreshments will be available from 6pm


Design is often associated with the design of objects - and in particular, the aesthetics, refinement and utility. In his lecture, Professor Till will suggest that this is not a sufficient description of design, as it may ignore the social, political and economic contexts in which things are produced and in which they then exist.

The lecture will explore the wider understanding of design; one which acknowledges this complex relationship and is illustrated with recent work from Central Saint Martins.
