Who we are and what we want
We come from design (in the diversity of its species), from the arts, from the natural sciences, life sciences and the humanities.
What unites us is the notion that everything that is called knowledge, at its deepest foundation, goes back to the formation of forms (Gestaltung) and related experiments.
With our designs and projects we show that in design and in the arts insights are produced which are irreplaceable and even special compared to other forms of knowledge.
We have come together in 2014 for this research group. Since then, we have been presenting our projects and designs at regular meetings and conferences, debating and developing them together, organizing publicity and promotion.
We reject the interpretive sovereignty of merely deconstructive sciences about the occasions, procedures, results of creative work. Instead, we simply design our own new theories that fit better with our aesthetic-practical experiments, i.e. those motivated by sensual experiences.
