Erik Sandelin 50% Seminar: Ahuman Design

Date and time
10 December 2020 at 09:00 AM - 12:00 PM
Type of event

In the future we may pride ourselves more on what we do *not* do, rather than on what we do. In his PhD project Erik Sandelin traces a “trajectory of not”, in post-anthropocentric design. Through experiential interventions (animal addiction hypnotherapy, eating the sun, becoming allergic to meat) in everyday exploitative human-animal relations, Erik explores carefully crafted not-doings and un-doings as vital design (in)actions.

Invited discussant is Johan Redström, professor of design at Umeå Institute of Design.

Also present are supervisors Martín Avila, professor of Design at Konstfack; Cecilia Åsberg, professor of Gender, Nature, Culture at Linköping University; and Helena Pedersen, associate professor of Education at University of Gothenburg with a focus on critical animal studies
