FH JOANNEUM-Lectures im Designmonat: Jennifer Morone
This lecture is about using design as a medium to catalyze social justice. Whether it be a single act of disobedience or a strategically planned agenda that unfolds over time, design and designers have an important role to play. The lecture will introduce the concept and mechanisms of influencing relevant thought and action through design. Comparative examples of past and present designs for justices and injustices will be examined as well as tactics and methodologies to be employed when designing disobedience.
