The Design Futures Lab is a collaborative space of speculative research and design in the MFA Design program at CCA. Design has a vital role to play in shaping both the imagination and our tangible expression of the future, building towards more resiliency, equity, and inclusion. In manufacturing processes, technology development, urban engagement, and aesthetic expressions, design is at the forefront of these questions. Design Future Lab takes this charge, designing and testing innovating ideas and shaping both the form and values of our future cities and environment.

We were punks once...

This lecture will encompass the reflections of Farid Rakun, of Jakarta's artists collective ruangrupa and the informal education platform Gudskul, on collective practices and working both outside and inside systems of power. From The Kuda (2012) to the formation of Gudskul (2018), and the making of the upcoming documenta fifteen (2022), the lecture will explore work beyond institutional critique, towards new forms of institutional aesthetics/practice.

A webinar link will be sent 30-45 minutes prior to the beginning of the event via email.
