Gender, Technology, Speculative & Critical Design

By exploring the relationship between gendered bodies and technology, Luiza Prado realized that speculative and critical design benefits from a blindly privileged environment. Prado discussed her point of view at the Open Critical Design Session organized in collaboration with Ramon Sangüesa, that counted on the participation of Pedro Oliveira, Lisa Ma and Laura Forlano.

More information on the session and its outcomes can be found on their blog post: Dystopian Presents and Dysmal Futures.

Luiza Prado is a brazilian design researcher that holds an MA in digital media at the University of Arts Bremen (Germany) and is currently a full-time Ph.D. candidate in design research at the University of Arts Berlin (Germany), funded by the Brazilian Council for Research and Development (CNPq).     @luizaprado
