The Visual Event contains the arguments and practical responses of students and their professors, guest artists, academics, designers and architects in the System-Design Class at the Academy of Visual Arts, Leipzig, on the potential of graphic design beyond its function as commercial product promotion. Documented in images and notes, the projects in this program test the premise of the visual event as a vehicle to contemplate situational design practice and suggest a variety of ways an extended practice may exceed the expectations of the field beyond its inherent object-given nature. For example, in her essay, Jan Budaj and the Temporary Society for Intense Experience (DSIP): A Week of Fictitious Culture, curator and director of the Museum of Contemporary Arts Liepzig, Franciska Zolyom, reflects on the virtual Surrealist project and how contemporary graphic design has been used by government and corporate culture to restrict the ways we think and move.
