Design and the Deep Future

The project explores the ways in which design and art can contribute to a more nuanced understanding of climate justice, planetary degradation and the loss of biodiversity. The collective aspects of the group include creating a glossary of key terms, an open-source library of references and resources, making essays (text, audio, visual and video), and developing and explicating new methods for researching this topic and for embedding it in education at KABK. The Group’s work is shared via a conference (Fault Lines), a publication, and online platform.

Who can apply?

Staff members, tutors, heads, and workshop instructors from all across the KABK (both in Design and in Fine Arts) are invited to apply, provided that they will be employed as a tutor at the KABK for the full duration of the Group, September 2022 - June 2023.
