1. Designing with the other 90%

    Cumulus Johannesburg, 22-24 September. 2014

    In September 2014, the Cumulus conference Designing with the 90%, took place in Johannesburg. The conference proceedings are now available on-line. They include Mathilda Tham’s paper Off-centre – a call for humble lessons for design which offers a critique of and a creative response to a Western centric and anthropocentric worldview in design and design education.


  2. Nordes Design ecologies

    Nordes Design Ecologies. Stockholm, June 2015

    Mathilda is co-chair, with Martin Avila, Håkan Edeholt and Bo Westerlund, of Nordes conference Design ecologies – challenging anthropocentricism in design which will take place at Konstfack, University College of Arts, Crafts and Design in Stockholm, in June 2015.

    This will be an exciting event with a mix of contributions from visionary scholars and practitioners, on the themes of sustainability and politics, economics, technology education, and even some wildcards.

     


  3. Routledge Handbook for Sustainability and Fashion

     

    Routledge, London, 2015

    Routledge Handbook for Sustainability and Fashion, which Mathilda has co-edited with Kate Fletcher, is now out.

Mathilda’s chapter Futures of futures studies in fashion draws on a framework for peace building to explore new pathways for sustainability endeavours in fashion.


  4. Oxford Design Charette

    Oxford, St Hilda's College. 26 August, 2014.

    In August 2014 the staff at Department of Design, Linnaeus University, Sweden gathered in Oxford for two intensive learning days in preparation for the launch of two new degree programmes, Design + Change and Visual Communication + Change , in 2015.  Mathilda and Anette facilitated a design charette which  enabled the staff to go through the six terms of the three years of the degree programmes in one intense day!

    A key insight was how valuable an immersive process without disruptive show-and-tells can be. The staff engaged in a series of mini-projects, involving mapping, role-play, making and more, staying inside the process all day long. Instead of formal presentations of project results, each term ended with a quiet moment of ‘graphic harvesting’ of experiences through means of drawing and writing.

  7. foreign investment in Hong Kong

    Oi! art center, Hong Kong, 23. January 2014

    As a member of foreign investment, Anette went to Hong Kong to present their pioneering project One Square Foot of Sky as part of the exhibition “Collector Club” curated by Ying Kwok at the art space Oi!  from 24 January – 21 April 2014. This piece forms part of a newly developed work that had its debut in London 2012. The piece poses taxing questions of the monetary, symbolic and copyright value of the sky and offers a new valuation for the skyline above Oi! With it’s reputation as one of the top investment capitals for the property market, Hong Kong is also an emerging fine art market. Beauty will embrace the beast and ‘investments of passion’ will become the future.
