Seven Questions

Seven Questions is the outcome of a series of online lunch lectures at ETH Zürich, organized by studio Jan de Vylder during the Corona lockdown. The briefing for the speakers was as simple as it was tricky: Talk about seven questions that you consider relevant without answering them. The results were as diverse as the contributors: 68 experts from architecture, design, history, theory, sociology, art, etc. gave an insight in the creative processes that drive their work.

With contributions by Tom Avermaete, Tatiana Bilbao, Petra Blaisse, Philippe Block, Lilitt Bollinger, Roger Boltshauser, Emanuel Christ, Irina Davidovici, Fredi Fischli, Joseph Grima, Nikolaus Hirsch, Bijoy Jain, Momoyo Kaijima, Charlotte Malterre-Barthes, Elli Mosayebi, Freek Persyn, Eva Prats, Alice Rawsthorn, Marianna Rentzou, Philip Ursprung, Christophe Van Gerrewey, Inge Vinck, Lori Waxman, and many more.
