In Need Of: Graduation 2016 Design Academy Eindhoven
According to the introduction by Jurriënne Ossewold: “[h]umanities and narratives are needed to train and understand compassion, but… compassion is about action, engagement. It is about doing things, and in our case about creating and giving form to ideas based on a deep understanding of what defines us as human beings.”
This notion of compassion thematically frames design education as an optimistic counter-movement at the Design Academy Eindhoven, which presents its full range of 171 graduating talents in this volume. Besides fifteen texts and conversations, the book includes students’ work in the design fields of identity, contextual, information, social, design curating and writing, and more.
