Designer*innen gestalten unsere materielle und immaterielle Welt. Über Produkte, Werbung, digitale Benutzungsoberflächen und Serviceangebote nehmen sie Einfluss auf unsere sozio-materiellen Beziehungen, Selbstdarstellungen und Verhaltensweisen. Geschlecht spielt dabei eine zentrale Rolle, da gestalterische Entscheidungen in Abhängigkeit von Annahmen über die Adressat*innen und ihre Gebrauchskontexte getroffen werden. Trotz dieses, durch zahlreiche Beispiele belegten, evidenten Zusammenhangs wird Geschlecht entweder gar nicht berücksichtigt oder auf triviale Stereotype von Männlichkeit und Weiblichkeit zurückgegriffen. Im vorliegenden Buch wird anhand von Ansätzen der Gender- und Queer Studies, der Science & Technology Studies und der feministischen Wissenschafts- und Technikforschung dem Wechselverhältnis zwischen Geschlecht und Gestaltung aus einer macht- und geschlechterkritischen Perspektive nachgegangen. Dabei wird das Verhältnis zwischen Designer*innen, Nutzer*innen und Artefakten beleuchtet, die darin wirksamen Macht- und Geschlechterkonfigurationen problematisiert und in ihrem Bezug zu Methoden des nutzungszentrierten Designs, des Critical Computing und des Critical Designs beleuchtet. Ergebnis der Auseinandersetzungen ist eine Designmethodologie, die konkrete Reflexions- und Handlungsempfehlungen für einen bewussten und nicht-stereotypen Umgang mit Gender und Diversity-Aspekten in gestalterischen Forschungs- und Entwicklungsprozessen und damit einen essentiellen Beitrag zu einer sozial vielfältigen und demokratischen Gesellschaft liefert.

Despite the topic’s urgency and centrality, this is the first edited volume to offer a comprehensive assessment of the varying approaches to early engagement with new technologies, including nanotechnology, synthetic biology, biotechnology and ICT. Covering five main approaches to early engagement—constructive technology assessment (CTA), value-sensitive design (VSD), midstream modulation (MM), the network approach for moral evaluation, and political technology assessment—the book will be a pivotal text in the rapidly developing research field of ELSI, which explores the ethical, legal, and social implications of new technologies. Featuring leading scholars who discuss each early engagement approach in turn, the chapters cover both theory and applications, and include evaluative assessments of specific instances of early adoption of technologies. Further contributions focus on theoretical issues relevant to all approaches, including interdisciplinary cooperation, normativity and intervention, and political and public relevance. The publication has added profile due to the requirement of multi-billion-dollar research programs in the US and Europe to engage in ELSI research alongside that of the technical development itself, even in the early stages. Its comprehensive scrutiny of the core factors in early engagement will ensure a readership of policy makers as well as scientists and engineers.

Architects and Creative Users

Publisher: Routledge

ISBN: 1134437048

Category: Architecture

Drawing on the work of a wide range of architects, artists and writers, this book considers the relations between the architect and the user, which it compares to the relations between the artist and viewer and the author and reader. The book's thesis is informed by the text 'The Death of the Author', in which Roland Barthes argues for a writer aware of the creativity of the reader. Actions of Architecture begins with a critique of strategies that define the user as passive and predictable, such as contemplation and functionalism. Subsequently it considers how an awareness of user creativity informs architecture, architects and concepts of authorship in architectural design. Identifying strategies that recognize user creativity, such as appropriation, collaboration, disjunction, DIY, montage, polyvalence and uselessness, Actions of Architecture states that the creative user should be the central concern of architectural design.

In the past decade, designers have become increasingly engaged with the quotidian. This shift away from more strictly formal and functional concerns has allowed them to freely explore design's contexts and effects. A light that responds to silence, a table that knows where it is, a pig farm the size of a skyscraper, a coat that becomes a tent, a house that fits in your pocket--these projects by innovators in the field of design question the habitual, transform the commonplace, alter our notions of dwelling and blur the boundaries between form and function. Strangely Familiar: Design and Everyday Lifeexplores the paradox of design in our daily lives. Anonymous and conspicuous, familiar and strange, design surrounds us while fading from view, becoming second nature to us and yet remaining still somehow elusive. This exhibition catalogue includes more than 40 innovative projects drawn internationally from the fields of architecture, product, furniture, fashion and graphic design. Among the designers and architects featured are Shigeru Ban, MVRDV, LOT-EK, Atelier Bow-Wow, Dunne & Raby, Marcel Wanders, Michael Anastassiades, Constantin and Laurene Leon Boym, and Allan Wexler. This richly illustrated volume includes essays on the tactics of formlessness and its impact on everyday consumption, the potential of an endlessly transformable environment to extend product lifecycles, and ruminations on the strange and familiar worlds of design.

Art & Theory in the 21st Century

Anthology of essays about seven pressing social and art-specific themes that encompass the full scope of the force-field of the visual arts. Renowned international theorists and promising young art critics and curators share their visions on a range of issues in accessible essays: What is the impact of 9/11 on our visual culture and the visual arts? What role does religion play in polarization? What are the consequences of ongoing globalization for the visual arts? How can we explain the revival of interest in canons and what function do they attribute to art? These socially engaged themes are alternated with topics that are traditionally more rooted in art, such as the return of Romanticism, the relative novelty of new media in the 'post-medium' era, and the utopian ideals of design. With such a varied selection of subjects and authors, the book builds a bridge between art and theory as well as between art and society, at a level attuned to academic discourse yet at the same time accessible for a wide-ranging public with an interest in art.

»Wozu die deutsche Kriminalliteratur in der Lage ist, zeigt der fantastische Band ›Berlin Noir‹. Besser kann man sich nicht durch Berlin führen lassen.« Thekla Dannenberg, Perlentaucher Ein spannendes literarisches Städteporträt und eine tiefschwarze Liebeserklärung an eine Stadt, die vor allem eines ist: keine Sekunde langweilig. 13 Kurzgeschichten, 13 Blickwinkel, 13 Stadtviertel – und 13 faszinierende Teile eines größeren Puzzles. Das Verbrechen zieht seine blutige Spur vom noblen Grunewald bis in den tiefsten Wedding, vom beschaulichen Altglienicke über das bunte Kreuzberg bis ins lebendige Friedrichshain, spürt den tödlichen Geheimnissen der Geschichte nach und setzt die Gegenwart als dunkel schimmerndes Kaleidoskop neu zusammen. Eine junge Frau aus gutbürgerlichem Zuhause endet in der Obdachlosenszene um den Bahnhof Zoo; eine Schießerei zwischen einem Ex-Bullen und einem Kleinganoven endet tödlich; die zarte Liebesgeschichte zwischen einer Boutiquebesitzerin und einem ehemaligen Kindersoldaten wird durch einen notwendigen Mord gestört – und wer weiß, was es mit der Leiche auf sich hat, die ein Barmann in der Kühltruhe einer Absturzkneipe findet ... »Berlin Noir« – so vielfältig wie die Stadt. Unberechenbar, überraschend, tragisch und komisch. Ein substanzieller Baustein der Berlin-Literatur. Aktuell und originell, wie Berlin selbst.
