Why do design? What is design for? These are forward-looking questions for a creative discipline that seems more slippery to define than ever. In a world of dwindling natural resources, exhausted social and political systems, and an overload of information there are many reasons to reimagine the design discipline, and there is a growing need to look at design education. We need new proposals for how to organise society, how to structure our governments, how to live with the planet, how to sift fact from fiction, how to relate to each other, and frankly, how to simply survive. The 4th Istanbul Design Biennial, and this publication ask: can design and design education provide these critical ideas and strategies?
