Overcome walls

"Mexico City - Vienna; America - Europe: What challenges does a globalized world have to face? Which international movements are emerging? Where and against what can we, as designers, express objections? In the sense of the Mexican Muralismo, socially relevant topics are reflected from different points of view, grievances are shown, hopes are formulated. In this context walls are not dividing elements. They are areas that open up space for new design visions.” (Martin Klaffensteiner)
