Rethinking the Index and Designing Commons at DRS 2014

Researchers from the Living Archives project will join panels and host workshops at the Design Research Society’s 2014 conference, Umeå, Sweden.

On June 15, Erling Björgvinsson co-hosts the workshop Designing Commons – Commons for Design, which aims to explore what professional designers and researchers, who operate in commons-like frameworks and aim to support collective action, could learn from the current commons discourse and research. The objective is to collaboratively develop a design research agenda to better understand the relationship between “commoning practices” and “collaborative design practices”. The workshop is organized by, among others, Erling Björgvinsson and Anna Seravalli, School of Arts and Communication, Malmö University, and Sanna Marttila, School of Art, Design and Architecture, Aalto University.

On June 16, Susan Kozel takes part in a panel conversation on the topic A Configurative Approach to Digital Imaginaries Design: Rethinking the Index, alongside Jonas Fritsch, Konstantinos Ioannidis, and Sari Tähtinen.

Other Malmö University researchers participating are Pelle Ehn and Maria Hellström Reimer.
