22 sessions and workshops addressing topics such as: sustainability, commons, indigenous knowledges, artisanal design, the politics of objects, design and gender, and much more.
+ Building Platforms: An intersectional space for decolonising, depatriarchalising, and deprecarising the conference from within.
During the three days of the conference, the foyer of the HGK FHNW will be inhabited by three design platforms that each problematise the role of design from within the discipline itself: Decolonising Design Group, Depatriarchise Design, and Precarity Pilot. With the aim of fostering an intersectional debate on the politics of design within practice, theory, and academic research – with particular focus on race, ethnicity, gender, and class – the three platforms will collectively activate a given space – a single two-storey scaffold of the kind used in civil construction.
+ Screening: Donna Haraway: Story Telling for Earthly Survival, a film by Fabrizio Terranova.
