Edited by Jörg Huber, Burkhard Meltzer, Heike Munder, Tido von Oppeln.
In the twenty-first century, as artists, designers and theorists increasingly debate the overlap between art and design in everyday life, It's Not a Garden Table explores current trends in the relationship between furniture and the worlds of art and design. Published on the occasion of a conference at the Institute of Critical Theory (Zurich University of the Arts) and the Migros Museum für Gegenwartskunst, Zurich, it convenes designers, artists and theorists from across disciplines, and includes contributions from Sven Lütticken, Klaus Spechtenhauser, Tido von Oppeln, Mateo Kries, Burkhard Meltzer, Alexander García Düttmann, Monika Kritzmöller, Jennifer Allen and Judith Welter; a conversation between Martin Boyce, Frédéric Dedelley and Max Borka; and a panel with Jerszy Seymor, Julia Lohmann, Jurgen Bey, Martino Gamper, Front Design, Martin Boyce, David Renggli, Matthew Smith, Andrea Zittel, Florian Slotawa and Mamiko Otsubo.
