David Graeber was connected to Memefest mostly via his incredible work on Debt.

This is an invitation to come together across the world for a memorial carnival in the spirit of the one and only, David Graeber, who just left us so suddenly and unexpectedly. The invitation emerges from his wife Nika and a handful of his friends.

Here is the sound file of the dialogue between Arturo Escobar and I at the recent Participatory design conference at the Festival de la Imagen in Manizales, Colombia. It was such a pleasure and honor to talk to Arturo but also pure joy to be connected again with Colombia again and in especially in this a way!!

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

Oliver Vodeb and Arturo Escobar have in this special dialogue, Participatory Design Conference at the 2020 Festival de la Imagen in Manizales, looked 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 focused on the politics of the possible, namely, a reality open for cohabitation of different worlds by design.

The conversation examined 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 discussed capitalism’s predatory strategies and design's role in it, while suggesting that another design, and another possible, are possible.

The Para-Academic Handbook: A Toolkit for Making-Learning-Creating-Acting

Edited by: Alex Wardrop and Deborah Withers

2014

There is a name for those under-and precariously employed, but actively working, academics in today’s society: the para-academic.

Para-academics mimic academic practices so they are liberated from the confines of the university. Our work, and our lives, reflect how the idea of a university as a place for knowledge production, discussion and learning, has become distorted by neo-liberal market forces.

We create alternative, genuinely open access, learning-thinking-making-acting spaces on the internet, in publications, in exhibitions, discussion groups or other mediums that seem appropriate to the situation. We don’t sit back and worry about our career developments paths. We write for the love of it, we think because we have to, we do it because we care.
