Speculative Design Archive
Het Nieuwe Instituut, Rotterdam
till 3 March

With a temporary archive installation, Het Nieuwe Instituut speculates on the possible contents of an archive for design and digital culture from the Netherlands. Who will save what – and how, and why – for future generations? Together with its visitors, Speculative Design Archive uncovers the value of both acknowledged masterpieces and forgotten treasures.

The installation follows the entire archival process: collecting, storing, arranging and describing items, reconstructing their origins and determining their value and significance.

Architectural Investigations in Contemporary Politics and Conflict
Session 10: Artificial Phenomenology

Eyal Weizman with Christina Varvia and Merve Anil
Evidentiary Aesthetics
Series: Open Seminars
Date: Tuesday 26 February 2019
Time: 18:30
Venue: AA Lecture Hall

The seminar introduces the means and modes by which architecture — as a contemporary set of techniques and as a body of knowledge — can become an investigative and evidentiary mode through which to interrogate contemporary politics and conflict.

At the shadow of new technologies of capture and detection – increasingly based on pattern recognition and other neural networks used in machine learning — also emerge ever more sophisticated techniques of secrecy and camouflage as well as new avenues for independent investigators. Counter investigating state policy and its associated secrecy are crucial because the facts of conflict are ever and always contested, incidents can have multiple readings, and states and security forces have a tendency for cover-up or denial in an environment now commonly referred to as ‘post truth’.

The seminar — building upon the work of the Forensic Architecture agency, its collaborators and friends — introduces a concept that bridges between architecture media and conflict.

Aktuelle Ausschreibungen: CfP: DHS 2019: The Cost of Design
The Design History Society conference The Cost of Design welcomes historic, contemporary and interdisciplinary approaches to the topic, and invites contributions from design historians, scholars, and academics in related fields, as well as design practitioners and educators, museum professionals and students.

'The Cost of Design' explores the complexities of the historic and contemporary relationship between design and economy. Design is both influenced by, and can shape, economic systems. Both 'cost' and 'economy' are to be understood beyond their financial implications. 'Cost' is envisaged as the exchange of resources, meaning or value.
The conference looks at how design sustains, accelerates or challenges dominant systems, and examines the resulting social, cultural, economic or environmental consequences that arise. It examines the roles of design in rapidly changing economies, examining the relationship between technological advances and the economy. 'The Cost of Design' also looks at design's relationship to the political economy and the global/regional/local exchanges occurring within. Design practices can react to, resist, challenge or seek to influence economies that are viewed to negatively impact in some way. The ways in which design has been used to affect positive change within economic systems will also be examined.

Submissions are due Monday 25 February 2019.

The Cost of Design,
University of Northumbria,
5-7 September 2019

The Business of the Bauhaus
Esther Cleven, Bauhaus-Archiv Berlin
Jeremy Aynsley, University of Brighton

In this centenary year of the Bauhaus, the Design History Society (DHS) and the German Gesellschaft für Design Geschichte (GfDG) collaboratively welcome proposals for papers that offer fresh perspectives on the many relationships between the famous school and business. Reflecting the conference theme of The Cost of Design, papers should consider the ways in which Bauhaus design has been part of the broader context of economy. With regards to the historic period of the Bauhaus in Germany papers should consider the practice and understanding of design as a commercial activity, product and system in the studio and workshop teaching, through the professional activities of staff and students, and as an institutional goal. Papers might also address how 'the business of the Bauhaus' went beyond the specific years of the school's existence, from the New Bauhaus in Chicago, through the reception of the Bauhaus in Post-War Germany (East and West), and the subsequent careers and legacies of the Bauhaus staff and students across a wide diaspora, to the worldwide professionalisation of (Industrial) Design as a significant economical force and the commercialisation of Bauhaus as an international brand.

Topics might include:

Business in the Bauhaus teaching and curriculum
Cooperation with industry, materials and work at the Bauhaus
Production lists, product lines and sales
Bauhaus advertising, prospectuses, catalogues
Bauhaus and exhibitions
Bauhaus books and public relations at the Bauhaus
Professional careers of former Bauhaus members and students
German Post-War economy and Bauhaus
Bauhaus as industrial design catalyst
Intellectual property
The contemporary Bauhaus brand
Bauhaus design editions

Proposals should be submitted (200 words maximum) with a short CV to the convenors Esther Cleven: e.cleven[at]bauhaus.de and Jeremy Aynsley: j.aynsley[at]brighton.ac.uk by 11 March 2019.
Proposals will be double blind peer-reviewed by members of the DHS and GfDG committees or the host organising committee of Northumbria University.

Sind Digitalisierung und Globalisierung als die großen ökonomischen und gesellschaftlichen Themen von heute vielleicht vergleichbar mit der Industriellen Revolution Anfang des 20. Jahrhunderts? Können wir das utopische Potenzial des Bauhauses nutzen, um Wege zu finden, die Designlehre den neuen Bedarfen anzupassen? Wie können wir die in den letzten Jahren vollzogene Erweiterung der Arbeitsfelder von Designerinnen und Designern nutzen und dabei nicht in die Falle geraten, den Designbegriff bis zur Unkenntlichkeit zu verwässern? Welche Entsprechung gibt es zur Forderung nach lebenslangem Lernen für eine kontinuierliche Fort- und Weiterbildung von berufstätigen Designerinnen und Designern, und was eigentlich hilft uns bei all diesen Fragen die Designtheorie?

In der deutschlandweiten Podiumsreihe »Bauhaus 4.0: Zukunft wird aus Design gemacht« beleuchtet der Deutsche Designtag, Dachverband der Designverbände in Deutschland an zehn Abenden Vorstellungen und Ideen für die Gestaltung einer lebenswerten Zukunft.

Bei der Podiumsdiskussion am 19.02.2019 in Dieburg bei Frankfurt soll das Spannungsverhältnis von Lehre und Praxis in Zeiten der Digitalisierung pointiert und provokativ diskutiert werden. U.a. mit Susanne Lengyel, Frank Zebner, Valentin Heisters, Markus Frenzl, Rüdiger Pichler und den beiden Moderatoren Ulrich Müller und Boris Kochan. Begrüßung durch Ralph Habich und Nicolas Markwald.

Ein Abend in kleinem Rahmen für Designerinnen und Designer, Lehrende und Studierende im Papierlager der Igepa.

Does Design Care…? Workshop
Chiba University, Chiba, JAPAN
1 to 3 July 2019

Does Design Care…? is a workshop/seminar for academics and practitioners from various disciplines at any level of experience who are involved and/or interested in the gesture and/or practice of “Care” at large.
The challenges in care systems have become apparently intractable. There have been divide and conquer approaches to responsibility and accountability in care that act to cripple our ability to engage with the speculative and systemic approaches that design offers. Imagination has been cauterized by a risk-averse, neoliberal culture – the same culture that also profits enormously from turning care into a transaction.

In the autumn of 2017, the first Does Design Care…? workshop took place at Imagination, Lancaster University, UK. A group of 28 researchers and practitioners from 16 nations across 5 continents discussed, acted and reflected upon “Care”.
Via a series of conversations, stimulated by a range of presentations that explored a range of provocations, insights and more questions, the group provided answers for the contemporary context of "Care".

Following on from this successful international Does Design Care…? workshop, the wish is to extend the conversations, presentations, insights and more questions in a second round.

Important Dates
Deadline for submission of one-page Does Design Care…? proposal – 18 March 2019.
Notice of acceptance and feedback – 18 April 2019.
Does Design Care…? Workshop dates – 1 to 3 July 2019.

Aktuelle Ausschreibungen: CfP: International MinD Conference 2019
Designing with and for People with Dementia: Wellbeing, Empowerment and Happiness
Date: Thursday-Friday 19-20 September 2019
Venue: TU Dresden, Germany
Conference Chairs: Dr Christian Wölfel, Prof Kristina Niedderer, Dr Rebecca Cain, Dr Geke Ludden

The conference will provide a trans-disciplinary forum for researchers, practitioners, end-users and policy makers from the design and health care professions to exchange and discuss new findings, approaches and methods for using design to improve dementia care and to support people with dementia and their carers.

With ca. 10.9 million people affected by dementia in Europe, with numbers set to double by 2050 (Prince, Guerchet and Prina 2013), with 20 million carers, and with no cure in sight, research into care to improve the quality of life of people with dementia is essential, to encourage and enable them to engage in activities that are in line with their interests and experiences (Alcove 2013; Alzheimer’s Society 2013).

Design can help to support social, leisure, creative activities. It can help empower people with dementia offering choices and aiding decision-making. Design can support the individual person, or change the environment. This can take the form of a product, of systems or services, of the built or natural environment. The importance is to use design to help reduce stigma and exclusion, and instead to improve well-being and social inclusion to create happiness.

The International MinD Conference invites submissions from a diverse range of researchers and practitioners from the various design and health disciplines, including product and interior design, craft, information and communication technologies, architecture and the built environment, psychiatry, psychology, geriatrics and others who make a relevant contribution to the field.

Deadlines:
8 February 2019 – Extended final date for full paper submissions
8 February 2019 – Extended final date for Design proposal submissions
