Jeudis Design 2015

For their 10th editions, the Jeudis Design invite you to special events to discover today's design trends, in Switzerland and abroad. Lectures, panels and debates will be as many opportunities to meet and exchange with Swiss and international designers.

In partnership with the magazine Espaces Contemporains.

On the occasion of the exhibition Telling Time, the mudac invites you to discover the watch of the future, to explore a watchmaking manufacture and to reflect on our relation to time during a round table with an historian and sociologist, a chronobiologist and a philosopher.

This autumn, the mudac takes to Zurich to delve further into the universe of the Freitag brothers on the occasion of their carte blanche exhibition.

Jeudi Design: Notre rapport au temps, Thursday 25 June at 18.00

Qu'ils soient sociétaux, historiques ou biologiques, de nombreux facteurs influencent l'organisation de notre temps professionnel et domestique. Quel est notre rapport au temps aujourd'hui? Comment ce rapport s'est-il construit depuis l'avènement de l'ère industrielle?

Trois spécialistes se réunissent pour en parler. Il sera question de notre approche du temps dans la société moderne, d'horloges circadiennes, des ouvrières de l'industrie horlogère suisse à la suite desquelles l'articulation famille et emploi est devenue possible.

With: Stéphanie Lachat, historian and sociologist; Félix Naef, chronobiologist and physicist and a philosopher
Moderation:
Benjamin Luis, journalist
