Design and Violence is an ongoing online curatorial experiment that explores the manifestations of violence in contemporary society by pairing critical thinkers with examples of challenging design work. For this debate series, spanning four evenings, the curators Paola Antonelli and Jamer Hunt have chosen four of the most provocative case studies to further explore the ambiguous relationship between design and violence. In each event, two debaters will tackle an object, taking opposite sides and arguing the faults and merits of the project and the contemporary issues that surround it. A lively group discussion will follow.
Classes meets Thursdays, March 20 & 27 and April 10 & 17 from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m.
