Intertwining histories of design: Portraying the map of present European design history through 10 ICDHS Conferences (1999–2014)

CALVERA, Anna ; BARBOSA, Helena ;


After the tenth anniversary of the ICDHS Conferences, this paper recalls and expands upon the European Province workshop held two years ago to address a transnational approach to reviewing the many histories of design that have emerged at these conferences. We have restricted the focus to Europe. This represents a first step in a wider research project aiming to rewrite the European history of design, comparing and intertwining all these peripheral histories that have emerged and, thus, establish the wider history. The project also assumes a previous task: to clarify what we actually mean nowadays by Europe. The aim is to draw the boundaries of a cultural, technical and aesthetic territory, a map of Europe based on what we have learned from the ICDHS conferences, and to think about it. This is the central argument of this paper.
