Event Description

The design practices that inspire social collaboration, participation, and coauthorship continue the avant-garde tradition of challenging outmoded thinking and perception while proposing and testing the visions of a beneficent social imagination. In this symposium, three artist-designers whose work critically reactivates this tradition will present and discuss their agenda, ideas, and projects. The panel will explore methodological approaches and concepts such as critical design, discursive design, interrogative design, and transformative design, currently being investigated in the Art, Design, and the Public Domain program at Harvard GSD.

With: Lucy Orta + Jorge Orta, Studio Orta, Paris

Joep van Lieshout, Atelier Van Lieshout, Rotterdam  

Moderated by: Krzysztof Wodiczko, Professor in Residence of Art, Design, and the Public Domain
