Marx – and now?

Panel discussion 200 times Marx - and now? At the end of the great Marx Year 2018, students and alumni of the HfG Offenbach and the Nanjing Normal University showed socio-critical posters in the Ost-Stern Galerie, which were created in the confrontation with Karl Marx Leben and his theory. In a concluding panel discussion, scientists, designers and politicians discussed the role critical design can play in society, how explosive Marx theory still is today, and how new public spheres can be won over to the social issues of our time. If - according to Marx - philosophers have always only interpreted the world, can designers change it? Where luxury sledges were previously sold, the discussion takes place in the shadow of the European Central Bank, which also demonstrates in Frankfurt's Ostend how capital has influenced our lives and, in particular, how a city like Frankfurt has lastingly shaped and changed our lives. 13th of September, 2018
