PLAYING FOOLS AND ENGAGING IDIOTS:
The function of Speculative Critical Design

Speculative Critical Design moves away from traditional approaches that limit design’s role to the production of profitable objects, focusing instead on a practice that is interrogative, discursive and experimental. This talk will offer an introduction to the practice and question how a form of design that is focused on asking questions might function to provide answers in an age of political uncertainty, austerity and ecological crisis. +
This talk will be held in English! +
