The Design History Society hold their first symposium of the decade, Design Heritage: Concepts, Contexts, Politics, at Design Museum this month.
‘Heritage’ is designed, from landscapes and buildings, to rituals and artefacts. Join this afternoon symposium at Design Museum to explore the interface of design and heritage. We will examine the various concepts and terms related to heritage at play in different fields and regions, explore the distinction between tangible and intangible heritages and what these categories mean for design history and design heritage, and raise questions of ownership, belonging, and the politics of design and heritage.
This symposium will be of relevance to all engaged in design and heritage and their relationship, past, present and future and especially design historians, heritage studies practitioners, researchers and students in these fields. Places are free and booking is essential.
