Digitalisation is more than a mere translation of the analogue. It is more a profound transformation of society and our world. The virtual world is increasingly intertwined with the real world, provoking new forms of immersion, experience and materiality.
The exhibition "Planet Digital" will take place in Zurich from 11 February - 6 June 2022 and has been realised by the Zurich University of the Arts, the University of Zurich and the Zurich University of Applied Sciences together with the Museum für Gestaltung. Together with national and international artists and designers, 23 projects were developed that deal with the present and future of digitalisation.
The Department of Design is represented with the following contributions & persons:
