BORDERLESS: Session 2
100% Analog
What is unique about communicating design?
Latin America has shown to be also a context where borders between disciplines, nations and language seem to have been over passed by the new architectural and design practices and modes of communication.
Borderless is a 3-series event to address the emerging and more established means of communication that Latin America is using, reusing and introducing to create, curate and talk about design: digital, analog, performance.
Is this second session we will be addressing the role of the editor, the index of a more and more multidimensional society, the democratization of media, and the use of media to create design and collaborative practices from the perspective of publishers.  How relevant is the curatorial space for design in Latin America, especially within a context where access and exposure to a global network has so far been limited?

After an apprenticeship as a graphic designer and some years as a peripatetic student in the United States and Holland, Lars Müller returned to Switzerland in 1982 and established his studio in Baden. Since 1996, he has been a partner of “Integral Concept,” an interdisciplinary design group active in Paris, Milan, Zürich, Berlin, and Montreal. Müller started publishing books on typography, design, art, photography, and architecture in 1983 and, as Lars Müller Publishers, has produced some 300 titles to date. Recently, he has branched out into visually oriented books on social issues, such as human rights and ecology.
