The focus theme: Revolution
The Design Month Graz 2023 is all about the focus topic Revolution. Revolution, understood as a fundamental upheaval of the past, has become an unmistakable constant in recent years. Its concomitants – from pandemics to war – irritate and unsettle. Revolution in today’s sense, however, is complex; it is digital, social, green, economic. And revolution means speed. It is needed to drive change more urgently, to find solutions more quickly. “Soft transformation” alone will not be enough to move society and the economy forward in a positive way. The creative industries are driving this revolution, and their players are developing intelligent and disruptive methods to find new ways and solutions to complex issues. Design and creativity offer the necessary tools and techniques for this, and for everyone. In the area of tension between revolution and continuity, between disruption and tradition, between “no longer usable” and “not yet imaginable”, Design Month Graz 2023 offers a platform to bring these multiple revolutions to the public’s attention. A lot is at stake. And nothing will ever be the same again. But things are moving forward.
