  1. 1. TILLBLIVELSER En trasslig berättelse om design som normkritisk praktik

    Detta är en avhandling från Stockholm : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Författare :Karin Ehrnberger; Sara Ilstedt; Minna Räsänen; Ylva Gislén; Erling Björgvinsson; [2017]
    Nyckelord :HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; Machine Design; Maskinkonstruktion;

    Sammanfattning : The increasing awareness of norm-critical perspectives (in society, academia and industry) brings with it the need to develop methods to ensure they can be implemented in practice. This thesis discusses how the role of design contributes to and maintains norms, and shows how design as a norm critical practice has great potential to bridge the gap between theory and practice in norm-critical work.

  2. 2. Critical indirectness as a design approach in participatory practice: Spatialities of multivocal estrangement in three engagements with public cultural institutions around participatory projects in Gothenburg

    Detta är en avhandling från Stockholm : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Författare :Jonathan Geib; []
    Nyckelord :TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; indirectness; multivocal design approach; design; participation; multivocality; transdisciplinary architectural research; critical spatial practice; spatiality; estrangement; design approach;

    Sammanfattning : Contributing across the domains of open transdisciplinary inquiry and transdisciplinary- and practice-oriented architectural and urbanism research engaging critically with participation in urban contexts, this research proposes critical indirectness as a multivocal design approach in participatory practice, developed through conceptual-analytical inquiry into three cases involving engagements between external art and design practitioners and public cultural institutions around participatory projects in Gothenburg. It joins with calls for art and design practitioners' greater engagement with public sector institutions as way of working towards a more durable and wider impact, with calls to model a more de-centered 'urban-combinatory' practice on the plurality, hybridity, discontinuities, and contingencies of the contemporary city, and with calls for more multiple, contradictory approaches.

    Nyckelord :HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; Participation; participatory design; participatory research; pitfalls; just participation; Kenya;

    Sammanfattning : It is my belief that participatory processes can lead to positive transforma- tions for the people involved. However, I do at the same time recognize that participation is inherently ambiguous and complex, and that this makes it vulnerable to unjust practices. LÄS MER

    Sammanfattning : This thesis is an interrogation of the contemporary politics of movement and more specifically, migration politics from the perspective of the agency of design and designing. At the core of this thesis lies a series of arguments which invite design researchers and migration scholars to rethink the ways they work with their practices: that states, in order to make effective their abstract notions of borders, nations, citizenship, legal protection and rights are in dire need of what this thesis coins as material articulations.

However, when describing products in terms of function or visual appearance, the reflection on a less visible dimension, the product meaning, is left out. LÄS MER
