Mending and Growing in Feminist Speculative Fabulations: Design’s Unfaithful Daughters
2016 (English)Other (Other (popular science, discussion, etc.))
This conversation seeks to consider design research practices around critical and speculative design which have been criticised for their lack of public engagement and awareness of their political and normative positions. In particular, we are interested in the ways in which feminist speculative fabulation offer alternative approaches through attention to core feminist arguments around corporeality, materiality, embodiment, affectivity and experientiality. Our conversation will imagine new ways of practicing design by examining relationships between speculative futures and reimaginings of the past; the role of a feminist perspective in problem-making and questioning; speculative design and fabulation as participatory practice; the role of practices around mending, growing, maintaining and repairing; and, the posthuman design and the anthropocene.
