Tabu 2013 / Part 1: documentation
Diplom Berlin University of the Arts

What are we not talking about? „Tabu“ is a research project, which investigates the power of design by analyzing objects of taboo areas like death, sex and violence.

The resulting critical reflection of the topic is divided into three parts:

Part 1: the documentation, which gives an overview about research results, design methods and process and teaches the reader how to start up a design oriented weapons company.

Part 2: a collection of 4 objects

Part 3: an informative short film
