︎Read about the Detroit encounters
A project by students traveling from Hamburg through Chicago, Detroit and back to Hamburg seeking artists, activists and practitioners fostering new ways of living and thinking within cities. This publication presents a chain of questions and answers by artists, architects, designers, and activists, lead by Design for the Living World and their collaborators, Tricia Van Eck of 6018North in Chicago and Kerstin Niemann of FILTER in Hamburg/Detroit. DFLW posed a question to someone, who then, after answering it, asked a new question, which was passed on to the next person. In this way, a fruitful exchange was created between Chicago, Detroit, and Hamburg.

Design for the Living World was a class on participatory practices conducted by Marjetica Potrč at HFBK Hamburg / Hochschule für bildende Künste (the University of Fine Arts) Hamburg. It ran from 2011 to 2018.
