This network engages with critical posthumanism via design practices, education, and research. We are designers and scholars who critically examine design’s biases, entanglements with anthropocentric worldviews and complicity in reproducing humanist ideals. At the same time we nourish our curiosity and belief regarding the need for designers to pay better attention to more-than-human earthlings like other animals, plants, and everything in-between and beyond.
Together we want to explore how design can grow and thrive in contact with posthumanism – and how designerly and artistic approaches in turn can inform the ongoing discussion around critical posthumanism and related discourses.
The network started in Sweden in 2018 but grew into an international and decentralized network.
