Speculative Design, Baghdad 800 – Istanbul 2048

Sun, Nov 20, 2016    11am
Are We Human
Oct 22 – Nov 20, 2016
Designing Life
Studio-X Istanbul

Tutor: Ayhan Aytes

Requirements: Artists, designers and architects; students who finished first two years in one of these programs may attend. Reservation required.

We invite artists and designers to a speculative design workshop that engages with questions on alternative pasts and futures and design fictions in relation to the Islamic and Middle-Eastern legacies of technology and design. As a point of reference, the workshop will use A Media Archaeology of Ingenious Pasts: Middle-East Pasts and Futurisms exhibition that features technical objects that reflect the legacy of mathematics, astronomy, architecture, technology and automata in the Islamic world. We are also hosting a seminar on November 19, as part of the biennial.
