Here is the sound file of the dialogue between Arturo Escobar and I at the recent Participatory design conference at the Festival de la Imagen in Manizales, Colombia. It was such a pleasure and honor to talk to Arturo but also pure joy to be connected again with Colombia again and in especially in this a way!!

The Onto-epistemic Politics of Participatory Design: A Dialogue Between Oliver Vodeb and Arturo Escobar

Oliver Vodeb and Arturo Escobar have in this special dialogue, Participatory Design Conference at the 2020 Festival de la Imagen in Manizales, looked into the radical potential of participation and design, especially in relation to knowledge. Taking a close look at the relations between the academy, practitioners and social movements, the dialogue focused on the politics of the possible, namely, a reality open for cohabitation of different worlds by design.

The conversation examined the potential for epistemic pluralism and participatory epistemologies to foster radical intimacy with each other and the earth. Looking at the growing field of critical design, Vodeb and Escobar discussed capitalism’s predatory strategies and design's role in it, while suggesting that another design, and another possible, are possible.
