Graphic design is shifting away from objectification, to a non-format, non-medium approach to design. Instead of focusing on the graphic design object, this approach is based on designing systems and methodologies that lead to design/design thinking. In this scenario, (graphic) design can be seen as a set of visual, linguistic, social, philosophical, and political tools implemented to a dataset.
The 2018 edition of Summer Sessions will be held at Graphic Design Arnhem’s own homebase in the iconic Rietveld building of the ArtEZ University of Arts in Arnhem, the Netherlands. The Summer Sessions will be devoted to exploring different design methodologies with the goal of re-evaluating and developing of one's own personal methodology. X IS METHOD is not only the theme but also the format of this unique edition of the GDA Summer Sessions.
