Design for Social Innovation and Sustainability (DESIS)
Critical Design moves away from traditional approaches that limit design’s role to the production of profitable objects, focusing instead on a practice that is interrogative, discursive and experimental. Using a range of examples from contemporary practice and through discussion with key practitioners, this lecture will offer an introduction to the practice and question how a form of design that is focused on asking questions might function to provide answers in an age of political uncertainty, austerity and ecological crisis.
