Why is it so hard to materialize the material turn? What are practitioners to do with the new theoretical tools that have become available to unpack the power of design? These open questions capture some of the confusion designers may ponder when the attention is drawn to their field. In this talk, Otto von Busch will unpack. some of main thoughts behind the book Making Trouble: Design and Material Activism, to explore how making practices “hack into reality” and come to challenge discursive, legal, and physical arrangements of power.

The cycle of meetings is part of the didactic proposal of the Doctorate in Philosophy and Human Sciences.

The meeting will be held in English.

Participation is strongly recommended to students of the Doctoral School in Philosophy and Human Sciences and to students of the Doctoral School “The Human Mind and its Explanations: Language, Brain, and Reasoning”.

Everyone interested is welcome to attend.
