What can care do?
And what does it mean to care? And how might it relate to design? On a generic
level caring can be described as “everything that we do to maintain, continue, and repair our ‘world’ so that we can live in it as well as possible” (Bernice & Tronto 1990)
This summer school focuses on a designerly and speculative approach to care in more than human worlds. These are characterised by interdependencies across actors as well as technoscientific and natureculture entanglements. We will work with tensions between despair and hope in sites that are
marked by the aftermath of industrial design practices and where care is enacted in different ways.
In times and worlds of interdependent environmental, sociocultural and economical urgencies, slow violence as well as catastrophes are experienced and projected unevenly. Therefore we will care for
intersections of powers and how to intervene in them with designerly means, partly with creative and norm critical approaches, towards new materialities, relations, narratives and practices.
The summer school will take place at and around Linnaeus University, Campus Växjö, SWE.
