Organised by the Objects, Practices, Experiences, Networks (OPEN) Group at Nottingham Trent University in collaboration with the Design Research Society and the Design Against Crime Research Centre at Central St. Martins. Hosted by Nottingham Contemporary.
This symposium is aimed at practitioners and academics in sustainable design, material culture, fine art, design history, cultural studies and the sociology and philosophy of technology. Taking an inclusive approach to the definition of “design” – formal and informal, commercial and DIY, normative and subversive, it will connect abstract discussions on the ethics of objects with concrete examples of things in action.
Confirmed speakers include Jana Scholze, Victoria and Albert Museum, Tim Dant, University of Lancaster, Mike Anusas, University of Strathclyde, Gene-George Earlé, Ralph Mills, Manchester Metropolitan University. Please see downloads section for draft programme.
