Sometimes, one conversation can change your mind; one person can change the way you look at things – by being invited into a stranger’s thoughts or an unfamiliar perspective on the world. Sometimes, one image can influence your thinking; another person’s storyline can become your everyday reality – by being exposed to somebody else’s narration of the world. Who tells the story? And who are we listening to?
Besides running her own studio practice in Amsterdam, Jeannette Weber recently joined the Cologne-based service design team of service works and is board member of the journalistic NGO “Froh!“. Previously, she worked as a research associate and lecturer at Niederrhein University of Applied Sciences, various design studios, and SDN. She graduated from KISD and Niederrhein University of Applied Sciences.
The talk will be held in English language.

The KISDtalks are a public lecture series on relevant perspectives of design. They give space for an open-minded and profound analysis and reflexion of the manifold issues of design, culture, society, technology, and different scientific disciplines. Topics are interdisciplinary, integrative, and provide internationality by domestic and international speakers.
The talks take place on specified dates on a Tuesday at 5:30 pm in the conference room 11 at KISD. The 60-90 minutes-long presentations with “Q&A“ are a public event and free of charge.
