Fragen des Designs erfahren aktuell großes Interesse in einer Vielzahl kulturwissenschaftlicher Disziplinen. Im deutschsprachigen Raum wurden bisher jedoch kaum theoretische und methodische Ansätze zur Analyse der sozialen und kulturellen Funktionen von Design entwickelt. Das Buch schließt diese Lücke und versammelt erstmalig verschiedene kultursoziologische und -theoretische Zugänge, die Design als wichtigen Teil der ästhetischen Signatur von Gesellschaft sichtbar machen. Fallstudien zu sozialen und kulturellen Gebrauchskontexten, Praktiken des Entwurfs, Fetischisierungsprozessen und ethisch-politischen Fragen komplettieren ein anschauliches Bild vom Design der Gesellschaft. Den Schwerpunkt bilden dabei praxistheoretische Ansätze, artefakt- sowie affekttheoretische Perspektiven. Mit Beiträgen u.a. von Karl H. Hörning, Gert Selle, Aida Bosch, Albena Yaneva und Joachim Fischer.

Unter den wachsamen Augen von Big Earl, dem Besitzer des Diners, wuchsen sie zu dem heran, was sie heute sind: drei kluge, witzige und starke Frauen. Und auch nach seinem Tod hat Big Earl weiterhin ein Auge auf seine »Supremes« – so wie auch andere gute Geister, denn dem Charme dieser außergewöhnlichen Ladys kann einfach niemand widerstehen ...
