Atelier de réflexion I Co-existence

Nicolas Nova: Observe the hybridizations



October 5, 2018, 18:00, Geneve, Mestrezat 7A

Utopiana invites you to follow a cycle of interventions that extends throughout the year 2018, under the theme "Co-Existences", to explore different ways of living our relationships with other living.

By combining text comments, and discussions of projects at the frontier of design, art and social sciences (anthropology, sociology), this conference will address the unique ways of exploring the theme of hybridization, which is at the heart of stakes of the Anthropocene.
On the basis of a selection of recent projects, the session will discuss the place played by design research - also called research-creation - in this company, highlighting the type of knowledge that results, the modalities and constraints of realization, as well as the modus operandi of the researchers involved in these projects. This part will be deepened by the presentation of an ongoing investigation taking the form of a bestiary of hybrid beings designed by speculative designers and artists; this inventory materializing a set of hypothetical scenarios as to our relationship to the current environment.

Co-Existences is designed by Stefan Kristensen, Anna Barseghian and Luca Pattaroni, all three members of the Utopiana Committee.
