Syllabus (in Czech)
  • Traditional design approaches like Human centered design definitely switched the way in which products, services, processes and structures were designed before. User oriented, user friendly and structured design process brought more than doors you can easily open. User centered design democratized processes and development not just in business world, but also in public sphere. On the other hand, design theory and political normativity behind human centered methodology is at least unclear. A lot of perfectly designed products and services like Airbnb, Uber or Facebook have unintended consequences like gentrification, exploitation or voluntary loss of privacy. Speculative designers Anthony Dunne and Fiona Raby says that dominant approaches in design are so called affirmative and tend to replicate status quo and its technological fetishism and industrial production and consumption. Affirmative design therefore prevents imagination in political, cultural and economic issues. And this is the point where critical and speculative design comes into play. Design should better address people as citizens with dreams and not just as consumers with wants. Critical design can comprehensively deconstruct ideologies and secret mechanisms hidden behind products and services. Speculative design than helps to encourage imagination about the possible futures in both negative and positive way in its conscious political normativity.
