London calling! Bence Csernák and Ethics for design

Designer Movie Nights is an excellent initiative to learn from each other and to receive first-hand information about the career opportunities in the field of design. The event goes something like this: each night they invite someone who holds an inspiring talk about his or her profession, after which participants watch a movie together, with a topic related either closely or more loosely to the design problems subject to the talk. At the next DMN evening, freelancer designer Bence Csernák will talk about his experiences in London in the field of design and business, and participants will watch the movie Ethics for Design focusing on responsible and ethical design.

Have you ever imagined what the world would be like without internet? Although you might still remember the pre-internet times, and so the task does not seem impossible, the use of the world wide web became an integral part of our everyday life. Its overnight end would have severe economic and political implications, not to mention its impact on several other areas of life. The exhibition of Ludwig Museum The Dead Web – The End will open this week: the show outlines exciting ideas about the internet and the absence of the same by presenting the works of artists from Québec, Switzerland and Hungary, too.
