The time of what remains: design and potentialities

by Virginia Tassinari

DESIS Philosophy Talks are a travelling series of discussions that try to create a bridge between philosophy and design theory and practice. In this discussion we renegotiate the ideology of linear time and progress through the philosophy of Walter Benjamin and Hannah Arendt and connect their ideas with the current discourse on designing in dark times.

Open Call: Alchorisma

by Z33

Alchorisma alludes to the relationships between algorithms, charisma, rhythm, alchemy and karma. Alchorisma is a Constant worksession which looks at integrating cosmogenetic views with the charisma surrounding technology. We look at ways to infect existing algorithmic models with positions that acknowledge the importance of co-existence with non-human entities. The Alchorisma worksession takes place from 2nd - 8 December 2018 at Z33, House for Contemporary Art in Hasselt, Belgium. Working language is English. Please find information and the open call here below. Read more »

9 July 2018 and I am (not) a monster

by Nelly Ben Hayoun

As part of the School of Time exhibition that Z33 is preparing for the Istanbul Design Biennial coming up in September, we’re happy to reveal some of the first ideas and steps towards a new project, I am (not) a Monster, by designer Nelly Ben Hayoun. Throughout this research project Nelly Ben Hayoun intends to demonstrate the state of ideologies- their origins, formulation and power structures- in contemporary society. Trained by Noh theatre and Kabuki’s experts and Sumotoris in Japan, with Bunraku puppets in hand, Nelly Ben Hayoun will reenact and question the writings of Hannah Arendt while talking to philosophers and families about their views on the role of learning and education in society today. In this first of two blog posts, she gives us some insight on how this project came into being. Read more »

STUDIO TIME

Time is out of balance, both on an individual and on a global level. On the one hand, we are confronted with hyper-speed and acceleration, typical of the global 24h-economy, financial markets and the world of technology, big data and algorithms. On the other hand, there is an urgency to think about deep time: the slow time of Earth, climate change, the ongoing discussion on the anthropocene. While politicians and media seem only concerned with the issues of the day, the complex contemporary global economy requires long-term future visions. How do we deal with the many conflicts and paradoxes of time? How credible is the past? How real is the present? What are possible futures?
