ARE WE HUMAN? THE DESIGN OF THE SPECIES -- 2 SECONDS, 2 DAYS, 2 YEARS, 200 YEARS, 200,000 YEARS. Ed. by Beatriz Colomina and Mark Wigley. Istanbul Design Biennial, 2016. Published by Lars Muller Publishers, Zurich. 400 pp. 25 x 17 cm. ISBN 9783037785126 In English.
Due date: November 2016. Publisher's description: The 3rd Istanbul Design Biennial explores the intimate relationship between the concepts of "design" and the "human." Design always presents itself as serving the human but its real ambition is to redesign the human. To talk about design is to talk about the state of our species. Humans have always been radically reshaped by the designs they produce and the world of design keeps expanding. This book gathers an international array of over seventy-five architects, designers, artists, archeologists, historians, and scientists who have responded to the subject. The result is a multi-dimensional documentary about the state of design today, when everyday reality has outpaced science fiction. It places the extreme condition of contemporary design in the context of the history of humanity.
