Oliver Vodeb and Arturo Escobar in Dialogue

We are excited to announce a special dialogue between Oliver Vodeb and Arturo Escobar at the Festival de la Imagen, Manizales, Colombia. The dialogue will happen online via Zoom infront of the festival audience @ 2.30 pm Tuesday, June 16th, Manizales time.

The Onto-epistemic Politics of Participatory Design: A Dialogue Between Oliver Vodeb and Arturo Escobar

Oliver Vodeb and Arturo Escobar will in this special dialogue look into the radical potential of participation and design, especially in relation to knowledge. Taking a close look at the relations between the academy, practitioners and social movements, the dialogue will focus on the politics of the possible, namely, a reality open for cohabitation of different worlds by design. The conversation will examine the potential for epistemic pluralism and participatory epistemologies to foster radical intimacy with each other and the earth. Looking at the growing field of critical design, Vodeb and Escobar will discuss capitalism’s predatory strategies and design's role in it, while suggesting that another design, and another possible, are possible.
