Will be presenting "Re-decentralize the web" to introduce my artistic research to the HES-So academic community.
This presentation will showcase a practice-based design inquiry on the relationship between the contemporary decentralization movements and interaction design hosted at HEAD Geneva (Hes-so) and EPFL Media X Design Laboratory. First part of the presentation will present the current state of the different decentralization movements , followed by a brief introduction to practice-based design inquiry (Research trough Design) which gives agency to artefacts (prototypes) that in return open unexpected perspectives; Finally, some of the current prototypes and proposed ones will be explained in depth.
This year MISS READ is working together with lumbung radio to produce a one-week radio and on-site program at the MISS READ Space in Wedding (September 17–21) and at HKW (September 22–24).

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.

Coming Commons brings forward discussions on the future of distribution and archives of printed matters with artist Anne-Laure Franchette, co-organizer of Volumes book fair. Juan Pablo García Sossa will present his research project Instituto Habanero on post-conflict situations in Colombia and his proposition of magical realism as a form of speculative design applied in global south in conversation with theorist and curator Nora Sternfeld (Professor HFBK Hamburg).
Coming Commons is the second iteration of the project The Coming Community as part of Manifesta 13 hosted at HFBK in Hamburg. It follows the discussion of last week on what may be a collective exhibition under the conditions of isolation embedded within increasing privatisation processes of both physical and digital spaces.
