On Display 05
On Display 05 deals with the interplay of design and democracy. There you will discover how participative design has contributed to Hamburg’s urban development and how electronic democracy can be formed and, with this, how our understanding of democracy itself can be changed.Autostadt [car city] becomes design city. The idea has become a reality with the Design Display exhibition, where two different exhibits are confronted for four months in a pyramid-shaped glass case and are associated with a main theme. The aim is to stimulate dialogue and to develop an expanded design concept throughout the exhibition period. The On Display magazines (German/English) are published to accompany each exhibition. Each issue highlights a pair of exhibits in more detail and provides more background information with essays and interviews.
