70s

Colourful, more colourful, Flower Power. In the era of the 70s there seem to be no borders any more – except of the own, of course. And even these can be overcome, in the meantime, with psychedelic aid. The square and angular has retired. Everything is in flow, even the usually so unwieldy beds, cupboards and tables. Lava lamp, Flokati carpets, flared pants and cheese hedgehog may be absent in no household. The life is a party and everybody has the right zu celebrate. And to join in the conversation – women’s rights, east politics, environment. Everybody feels appealed and puts in hias two cents. Since really an lot is wrong in the world again: terror as far as the eye can see. In the East the Soviet Union takes Afghanistan, the Rote Armee Fraktion (RAF) is ramping and raging and Palestinians are charging the Olympic Village in Munich. While Abba inspire the masses and John Travolta is dancing in the iridescent light of the disco ball, the first test-tube baby sees the light of the world. Now the pleasure of education – formerly a privilege of the rich – reaches everybody and computers become affordable for every consumer / user. The course for a future full of technology is set.
