Digital lecture series on positions, interpretations and practices of the speculative +
The research project Speculative Space at the Centre for Design Research (HAW Hamburg) asks about the epistemic potential of speculative design. In the lecture series Potentials of Speculation, we focus on concrete speculative approaches and tactics from various disciplines. While last semester we focused primarily on afrofuturist positions, this semester we turn to the following questions: What does speculation mean in feminist practices? What role does speculation play in the writing of history? On what basis can we speculate about worlds to be built? Or more generally: What is speculative science? What would a science look like, that questions its dogmatic dimension through its own methodology? And to what extent is a speculative design practice suitable for these acrobatics?
In doing so, we assume that there is not one correct form of science, but many possible forms of creating knowledge. +
The first part of the series took place in the wintersemester 2020/21, and was followed by "Potentials of Speculation II" in the summersemester 2021. +
