Krzysztof Wodiczko (professor in residence of art, design and the public domain) recently presented his work in a public lecture in Santiago, Chile, as part of the ARTS@DRCLAS Overseas Faculty Series. The talk was the first phase of the Designing for Civic Engagement: Instruments of Expression, Dialogue and Collective Critique research project, exploring alternative forms of informal learning using new design technologies. It is supported by DRCLAS (the David Rockefeller Center for Latin American Studies) in collaboration with the Design Lab of Universidad Adolfo Ibañez.
The lecture will be followed by two workshops in fall 2014 at the GSD and at the University of Pennsylvania School of Design. The project is one of 12 included in the 2013-14 Chile Harvard Innovation Initiative, which provides start-up funds for collaborations between Harvard and Chilean colleagues for joint research and programs.
