ARE WE HUMAN? THE ARCHAEOLOGY OF DESIGN. Beatriz Colomina and Mark Wigley. Lars Muller Publishers, Zurich, 2016. 176 pp. 25 x 17 cm. ISBN 9783037785119 In English.
Due date: November 2016. Publisher's description: Are We Human? rethinks the philosophy of design in a multi-dimensional exploration from the very first tools and ornaments to the constant buzz of social media. The average day involves the experience of thousands of layers of design that reach to outside space but also reach deep into our bodies and brains. Even the planet itself has been completely encrusted by design as a geological layer. There is no longer an outside to the world of design. Design has become the world. Design is what makes the human. It is the very basis of social life. But design also engineers inequalities and new forms of neglect, such as lawlessness, poverty, and the climate at the same time as the human genome and the weather are being actively redesigned. We can no longer reassure ourselves with the idea of "good design." Design itself needs to be redesigned.
