Design Culture(s) is investigating not simply on the concept of culture as a monolithic expression of a specific knowledge that reflects on itself, but as the product of an investigation that is open to many different “Cultures” which are emerging and revolving around it in society, in the places and in history.

Digital Matters: Designing/Performing Agency for the Anthropocene
In scholarship the Anthropocene has been tied up with the experience of the unthinkable by thinkers including Timothy Morton, Donna Haraway, and Amitav Ghosh. Yet, the current COVID-19 pandemic—which as a crisis also exemplifies the human impact on and a reshaping of environments—challenges the pervasiveness of the key concepts of abstraction and unthinkability. Instead, the pandemic has turned the Anthropocene into a concrete, intensely lived, globally shared experience.
Online Education: Teaching in a Time of Change
Recent events across the world of academia have brought into full light the various agendas around online education and research. As universities, schools and colleges closed across the world in 2020, researchers, teachers and students scrambled to adapt to a whole host of new pedagogical tools, communicative techniques, learning methods and teaching styles almost overnight. Some survived, others thrived, while some struggled and ultimately went ‘out of business’.
DESAIGN – The Impact of artificial Intelligence (AI) on Contemporary Design
These developments in AI pose a significant threat to many design professionals who will be replaced by artificial intelligence that will make human labour redundant. However, the integration of AI systems into the design process also provides new opportunities: collaboration with AI systems allows for design on a level of complexity and scale that human cognition cannot encompass. Therefore, based on the recognition of the creative capabilities of the machine, the challenge for designers today ...
Animaloids and Plantoids
Now we are allowed not only to enter animals’ and plants’ environments and behaviors more in depth, but also to steal from them the secret of their ‘technologies’ which explain their survival power. This research culminates in the field “biomimicry” and the construction of hybrids which may give birth to new species of animals and plants,
POM Berlin 2021
In a state of ontological crisis, all boundaries between human and machine, nature and culture, and the organic and inorganic have been severely blurred. These are times of curious contrivances, novel natures, inescapable automation, and posthuman performances – where human and nonhuman find themselves being entwined, meshed and muddled into new unwitting entanglements.

Biennale WRO 2021 REVERSO
REVERSO is a call to look at what is happening now in art from the underside which, until recently just peeking through, is now becoming increasingly visible, from the reverse of a suddenly upended side, as well as being a device that saves the lives of climbers in case they suddenly fall off the rock, helping them convert an inevitable crash into a controlled rappel. If the discovery of cyberspace as a social territory in the 20th century is compared to great geographical discoveries, the diss...

Quantum Theories of Consciousness
Einstein considered him to be his “spiritual son;” Robert Oppenheimer was his thesis advisor. But the scientific orthodoxy ultimately dismissed the radical work of physicist David Bohm, who introduced Consciousness into quantum theory.

Sopravvivere all’Antropocene: dialoghi sull’estinzione e l’emergenza
Chi di noi frequenta i social media è ormai abituato ad assistere a una continua litania di notizie, video, immagini (più o meno fake, più o meno sensazionali) che ci avvertono di trovarci in un periodo di forte trasformazione. Il cambiamento climatico, l’imminente estinzione di animali e insetti, la scomparsa del paesaggio naturale a causa della speculazione umana, sono tutti fenomeni sintomatici di una nuova era che ormai è entrata a far parte del gergo popolare: l’Antropocene.
