|Design is mainly understood as the activity of producing more or less useful artefacts, but not necessarily as a political
activity. The design of an artefact, however, is always also a political decision about how people should live, communicate
or behave. Furthermore, design can be used as a political instrument in the form of activism, or as a medium to discuss and
dream about possible or better futures. Politics itself can also be understood as a form of design, since it involves planning,
making decisions and devising laws. The material dimension of politics and the political dimension of artefacts are explored
through a series of lectures with international guests.
