BJORN FRANKE

Teaching

I teach design theory and practice at the University of Applied Arts Vienna and the Zurich University of the Arts. My lectures and seminas in design theory focus on aesthetic, technological and political aspects of design. I take an explorative, critical and speculative approch to design practice and understand design as a medium for inquiry. I supervise Bachelor and Master thesis projects and am happy to take on PhD supervision in these areas of design.
