commons in design conference at institute experimental design and media cultures (ixdm)

I will be presenting a paper Co-authored with Gregoire Rousseau. at Commons in Design Conference in Basel

The project “Commons in Design” (2019–2023), funded by the Swiss National Science Foundation, deals with the concept of design in the context of digitalisation and the resulting change of the role of designers. Technological advances have enabled new paradigms of work organization (e.g. co-working), new professional communities and identities (e.g. maker culture) and empowered frameworks for co-creation, co-design, and the sharing of design knowledge and products. Current research directions focus on issues of sustainable products and services, design processes, and forms of collaboration.
