Slutseminarium: Annelies Vaneycken, Designing for and with ambiguity


Exploring ambiguity as a resource for actualising a democratic process in participatory design practices with children

This seminar will present the last stage of her doctoral studies and discuss the material so far produced. In her doctoral studies, Annelies Vaneycken has explored how openness and ambiguity can help to develop collaborative processes wherein both the adults and children are equally involved. Annelies her work shows how ambiguity can be a resource for actualising participatory design practices with children as a democratic process. It includes the ambiguity-approach she has developed which aims to help designers and other practitioners to strategically work with the complexity of ambiguity. With her research, Annelies contributes to participatory design practices with children, participation in society, and democracy.

The material will be discussed with Elke Krasny. Elke Krasny is a curator, cultural theorist, and writer. She is professor at the Academy of Fine Arts Vienna, Austria. Her theoretical and curatorial work is firmly rooted in socially engaged art and spatial practices, urban epistemology, post-colonial theory, and feminist historiography. In her conceptually driven and research-based curatorial practice she works along the intersections of art, architecture, education, feminism, landscape, spatial politics, and urbanism. She aims to contribute to innovation and debate in these fields through forging experimental post-disciplinary alliances between research, teaching, curating, and writing.
The project is part of TRADERS, short for Training Art and Design Researchers in Participation for Public Space. More information via www.officeforpublicplay.org and www.tr-aders.eu.
