Seminar: Co-Making. Design Participation in Transformation?

CODE invites to Laura Popplows presentation of her on-goning PhD work:
“Co-Making. Design Participation in Transformation? An experimental-programmatic & discourse research”. Wednesday, March 15th from 11.00 – 12.00. Place: KADK, Room 90. 3. 15. Fabrikmestervej 6, 1435 Copenhagen K

Following a “programmatic approach” (Brandt et al 2011), through a series of collaborative design experiments Laura asks: Where do we find the political potential in design practice? How specifically can design practice support a broad participation in what has been lately called “a new social contract” for a “World in Transition” (WBGU 2011)? How can the designer in relation with other, unequally positioned actors act as a productive enabler of transformations, as someone who is always acting in located, situational, socio-material

About Eva Brandt

Eva Brandt is Professor in Social Design at Design School Kolding since May 2019. Eva is scientific leader of the Lab for Social Design. The main part of her research is about how designers can stage open design processes (design labs based on participatory design/codesign) with many participants who both can inquire into existing practices and explore possible futures in common. She also contributes to theorizing about experimental design research driven by programs and experiments. She has been contributing to several books such as Design Spaces (IT Press, 2005), Rehearsing the Future (The Danish Design School Press, 2010), XLAB (The Danish Design School Press, 2011), Facilitating Change – Using Interactive Methods in Organizations, Communities and Networks (Polyteknisk Forlag, 2011), and Routledge International Handbook of Participatory Design (Routledge, 2013). Practice Based Design Reseach (2017). Ledelse og samskabelse i den offentlige sektor (2018). Eva has been chairing the Nordic Design Research Conference in 2013, and are chairing the Nordes 2021 too.
