Description

‘Design in Social and Political Context’ introduces students across the design disciplines to international leading ideas and voices in the field of anthropology, curation, design writing, design history and practice exploring “the politics of design” in contemporary context through Zoom based lectures. The focus of the current series lies in the social and political impact of AI and digital media technologies on design, exploring relevant topics such as ethics, interactive practices, gender, and cultural production through the implication of AI design and digital technologies.

The SS 2022 series of speakers forms the foundation of Q&A discussion, and the potential reflection on students’ own projects in relation to the emerging ideas.

This course is presented in English.
