Questions? Looking for answers in the middle of somewhere
EK: Burning a book is an immense step for one to take. We are in a public library. It's not a nationalist reading room where you would find things that could politically upset you. Dealing with a racist text - that could probably be a motivation to burn it.
LP: I also had a practical problem because ninety-nine percent of the books I have looked at I do not understand the content of. So based on which criteria should I burn a book?
EK: Unfortunately, the English section upstairs was not very elaborate.
In this book David Bennewith and Sereina Rothenberger went two times - in 2015 and 2017 - with graphic design students from the Karlsruhe University of Arts and Design to the Autonomous Republic Rotis in the German rural Allgäu to conduct all kinds of interviews with the designers of the institute Otl Aicher and Inge Scholl, regarding design in the broadest sphere. Further, they invited other designers to be questioned, namely: Marietta Eugster and Manuel Krebs (Norm) from Switzerland, Wayne Daly and Veronica Ditting from the UK, Elisabeth Klement & Laura Pappa and Vinca Kruk (Metahaven) from the Netherlands, Monika Maus from Germany, Boy Vereeken from Belgium, Vier 5 from France and Honza Zamojski from Poland.
