DMY Berlin 2016
Köpenicker Str. 70, 10179 Berlin, Germany, Berlin, Germany
The DMY International Design Festival Berlin will be taking place from June 2nd to 5th, 2016 at Kraftwerk Berlin in the disctrict of Mitte. For the first time in 14 years of existence the DMY International Design Festival Berlin is opening up to participants from all disciplines – from product and industrial design over fashion, graphic to communication and digital design. The DMY International Design Festival Berlin presents itself as a place of communication between different design disciplines, companies, young and talented designers, media and the broad public. The festival offers insight into the practice of current design production, highlights new tendencies as well as upcoming trends. Therefore, it connects different aspects: it offers exhibition spaces for the presentation of new design projects as well as a place for interdisciplinary communication and critical reflection. Design is supposed to be understood as a chance to make our world more sustainable, innovative and useful. The lines between disciplines are increasingly blurred. Design has the potential to connect the digital with the analog world and establish hybrid structures. Thus, the DMY Festival does not only focus on the presentation of market-ready products but also encourages exchange with respect to research, innovation and interdisciplinary approaches. Works from neighbouring disciplines are included and we would like to encourage the submission of cross-over projects. Especially critical and experimental works are considered innovative driving forces of design practice and play an important role withing the festival. The DMY Team is looking forward to many exciting projects and participants. See you in Berlin!
