The intervention by studio "Szenische Räume" of the PBSA I HSD in cooperation with #ADA deals with the effects of the disposable society and the possible renunciation of excessive consumption. How are economic growth and private consumption linked? How is an exit from the consumer carousel possible and how much renunciation is feasible and possible? When does renunciation become a mere step backwards and when does it lead to associations of failure? What is the right measure, how does one get from renunciation to sufficiency? How can the sharing economy really contribute to a fairer society? And who is actually"ready to share" under what conditions?
The students from the Department of Interior Design at the University of Applied Sciences Düsseldorf try to provide answers: They did research on the topic of sharing in their immediate surroundings by interviewing passers-by at various public places in Cologne. The result of this survey can now be seen in the context of an intervention at the NRW-Forum and all visitors are invited to participate. A public discussion will also take place on 6 April 2018.
