It's Not a Garden Table - Art and Design in the Expanded Field

Artists, designers, and theorists are discussing the consequences of design as a self-referential practice, the aesthetics of everyday life in the art context, as well as many other topics, with a special focus on furniture. The publication proposes three approaches toward the expanded definition of design today and its relation to the art context.
