📍 Split, Croatia
This year’s Speculative Design Workshop (Interakcije 2018) will focus on one of the most relevant global topics: climate change.
In the course of the workshop, participants will have the opportunity to speculate about implications and reflections of global trends in relation to climate change in the local context. This year’s speculative design workshop will take place 15- 21 October at the Split Arts Academy. The workshop will be led by Ted Hunt, British speculative and critical designer based in London and Estelle Hary interaction designer from Design Friction studio from France. They will be 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, will hold a lecture on the current state of speculative design practice and how to image different futures in the so-called “real world”. Our special guest from Portugal, Francisco Laranjo, editor of the “Modes of Criticism” magazine, will give a public lecture on design activism in the post-truth and post-satire era.
