WDCD afterparty + Public Intimacy

Masterclass, Talk and Afterparty

The body has an amazingly intricate system for eliminating waste. However, we have become increasingly ashamed of this natural and inevitable bodily function. This week's Talk and Masterclass: Public Intimacy, by designers Agi Haines (UK) and Bettina Möllring (DE), aims to speculate about the role of the toilet as a prosthetic, by connecting our bodily material with our external environment. Tickets are still available.

On Friday night you're also invited for the official What Design Can Do Afterparty.


Stand up and enjoy the urination - http://www.the-stand-up.com The Stand Up is a biodegradable, disposable peeing accessory that helps women keep their distance from the mess and feel the freedom to go anytime, anywhere. Founded in San Francisco in 2014, the Stand Up Movement is helping women everywhere to find their feet and Stand Up for themselves. More information: http://www.the-stand-up.com
