Interakcije 2018 workshop: Life After Disaster

November 12, 2018

SpeculativeEdu kick-off meeting and open discussion were part of this year’s Speculative Design Workshop (Interakcije 2018) focused on one of the most relevant global topics: climate change.

In the course of the workshop, participants had the opportunity to speculate about implications and reflections of global trends in relation to climate change in the local context. The workshop took place at the Split Arts Academy and was led by Ted Hunt, British speculative and critical designer based in London and Estelle Hary interaction designer from Design Friction studio from France. Assisted by Oleg Šuran from the Visual Communications Design Department at the Arts Academy in Split and two final year master students. Ivica Mitrović, in the role of the workshop’s coordinator, presented a lecture on the current state of speculative design practice and how to image different futures in the so-called “real world”. Special guest from Portugal, Francisco Laranjo, editor of the “Modes of Criticism” magazine, gave a public lecture on design activism in the post-truth and post-satire era.
