Martin Avila, Professor of Design at Konstfack to join dialogue session.


From the press announcement
To celebrate the release of Designing in Dark Times: an Arendtian Lexicon, we are organizing a series of dialogues to further explore what "dark times" means today and design's recent positioning towards the expanded field of the society within it through an Arendtian lens.

Each Dialogue will convene several of the book's contributors to discuss connections between design, politics, and philosophy for acting and designing against, within, and through dark times.

This session will feature Carl DiSalvo (Public), Laura Forlano (Technology), Otto von Busch (Metabolism), and Martin Avila (Togetherness) with the mediation of the book's editors Eduardo Staszowski and Virginia Tassinari.

Join us on Zoom this coming Wednesday, 10 February, 12:00 ET in this conversation about our present, universal moment navigating darkness, light, and the many shades in between.

About the Book
Edited by Eduardo Staszoswki and Virginia Tassinari, "Designing in Dark Times: An Arendtian Lexicon" gathers 56 terms drawn from Hannah Arendt's writings as entry points for authors to explore what "dark times" means today and design's recent positioning towards the expanded field of the society within it. The book is part of the "Designing in Dark Times" series, published by Bloomsbury, which investigates design’s capacity to offer critical and transformative perspectives on our contemporary condition.
