What to design in the ruins of capitalism? Designing Kinship through the lens of interspecies relationships and Indigenous Futurisms

Coppens, Laura (25 May 2019). What to design in the ruins of capitalism? Designing Kinship through the lens of interspecies relationships and Indigenous Futurisms (Unpublished). In: Design Conference: Dilemma, Dillemma!. Bern University of the Arts, Progr Bern. 24. - 25.05.2019.

Designing Kinship through the lens of Indigenous Futurism and collaboration: In my talk, I will look at "designing kinship" through the lens of indigenous futurisms. How do Indigenous people imagine different futures while critically addressing contemporary issues? How can we embrace a subversive mode of storytelling and representation in order to create more meaningful work and undermine dominant ideologies? How is kinship (re)imagined in Indigenous media productions? I will further suggest that socially relevant design should be based on collaboration. As creative content creators and designers, it is not only important what we envision and create, but also how we design and who we include in the process.
