Interakcije 2017 — Speculative design workshop: Automation
« on: September 27, 2017, 03:32:27 PM »
......... 'The Mediterranean speculative approach is dealing with “big” global technological, economic, social and political issues within the local context that is the best known and inside of which one can best contribute. Practice at the Arts Academy in Split tackles dystopian scenarios in line with the Mediterranean approach (“from the edge of Europe”, removed from the European urban and technology centres) and challenges them from a humanist perspective.
This year workshop is dealing with one the most focused “big” global issues — automation.

During the workshop, participants will speculate about implications and reflections of the global automation trends in the local context. Speculative design workshop will take place at the Arts Academy in Split, Croatia, from 16th till 21st October 2017. Workshop will be led by Tommaso Tregnaghi, art and design researcher from the Italian multidisciplinary lab / network Nefula) with assistance by Oleg Šuran (Department of Visual Communication Design, Arts Academy, Split). Workshop coordinator Ivica Mitrović will introduce participants to the so-called Mediterranean speculative approach and will talk how to imagine different futures in the Real world.'
