Victor Papanek : the politics of design by Victor J Papanek( Book )

3 editions published in 2018 in English and German and held by 121 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Victor Papanek: The Politics of Design' offers a comprehensive overview of the work of the designer, author, and activist Victor J. Papanek. His main work, the instructive guide 'Design for the Real World' published in 1971, is as much in focus as his designs and his commitment to social minorities, the so-called Third World, and the considerate use of natural resources. This book documents countless photographs, artistic works and designs, objects, drawings, letters, and other materials, some of which are published here for the first time. Papanek's close exchange with contemporaries such as Richard Buckminster Fuller, George Nelson, and Marshall McLuhan is also examined. Contemporary work by Tomás Saraceno, Catherine Sarah Young, Gabriel Ann Maher, Thomas Thwaites, and Forensic Architecture, as well as Flui Coletivo and Questtonó, among others, rounds off the publication and demonstrates that Papanek's interpretation of design as a tool for social transformation is as relevant as ever and continues to shape debate on social design, critical design, and design thinking."

1 edition published in 2014 in Spanish and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Diseñar para el mundo real contiene las opiniones de Papanek sobre el diseño en general, el diseño industrial, la artesanía y el arte, acompañadas de ejemplos de diseños del autor y sus alumnos y de propuestas y soluciones a problemas de carácter social. Tras más de tres décadas, muchas de esas propuestas están superadas pero sus reflexiones sobre el diseño para la necesidad, la responsabilidad del diseñador y la diseñadora, lo que hoy denominamos diseño ecológico, diseño universal y open design, siguen siendo absolutamente válidas
