translations 03: authorship in design – autorschaft im design


November 20 and 21, 2009 / Symposium of the Master Program Gutenberg Intermedia / University of Applied Sciences Mainz


The third international translations-symposium under the heading »authorship in design - autorschaft im design« is concerned with the self image of the communication designer and his role in society.

The much discussed authorship in design marks a growing concern about self consciousness and responsibility in this discipline. The great attraction and the tempting possibilities of communication design compel us – in view of a global crisis concerning mutual trust and credibility – to form a stronger bond with its contents and to critically reflect on our own work. At the same time there are new fields of work opening up for the designer as an author, reaching far beyond the classic understanding of graphic design.

The symposium aims at highlighting the designer as a responsible co-author and as a visual author of contents. We have invited internationally renowned designers, as well as artists and specialists for design theory, to talk about the different aspects of this field, discuss them and give insights into design practice.

The following five kinds of authorship in communication design will be discussed:

* The designer as a visual explorer
* The designer as a meaningful narrator
* The designer as a developer of intermedial “tools”
* The designer as a social critic
* The design theorist

When and where are these forms of authorship needed? What are their consequences concerning the relationship between client and designer? What are the consequences of this discussion for the classic picture of the communication designer? What are the resulting requirements for practical work and training?
