The Critique of Design Thinking is a bit naive, but there is a lot in here which deserves support. Quite a few things similar to our Memefest workshop approaches. The idea that good design is potentially solving problems created by bad design is one of them. Still what's missing is an emphasis on decolonization:

This is really worrying if we don't find an alternative. Its interesting because the growing distrust to media was mostly visible in advertising first. Now media as such will become distrusted but with potentially severe consequences.

AI and the End of Truth

A necessary read on how machines, software and AI are changing the culture of photography and image

Invisible Images (Your Pictures Are Looking at You)
By Trevor Paglen

http://thenewinquiry.com/essays/invisible-images-your-pictures-are-looking-at-you/

So what is the future of photography and communication design? And how should we change what we teach students in both areas to remain both fields as a relevant body of knowledge- practiced by humans?

This is super interesting and important to read. Trumps communication culture is based on "black FB posts"- and labor exploitation via design crowd sourcing platforms in Asia.

Description

APES CONTAINER is an artists-led coop­er­a­tive and a plat­form for trans­dis­ci­pli­nary col­lab­o­ra­tion, based in the Netherlands.


APES CONTAINER started in Sep­tem­ber 2008, when a group of young prac­ti­tion­ers from dif­fer­ent dis­ci­plines and cul­tures came together to explore and inves­ti­gate the realms of each other’s prac­tices through inter– and trans– dis­ci­pli­nary collaborations.

In Sep­tem­ber 2010 they joined forces in a coop­er­a­tive eco­nom­i­cal effort and chris­tened their ongo­ing exchange by found­ing a Cul­tural Asso­ci­a­tion which oper­ates under the guid­ance of the Board.


Sticht­ing APES CONTAINER sup­ports indi­vid­u­als com­ing from dif­fer­ent nation­al­i­ties, who have grad­u­ated from Dutch Con­ser­va­to­ries and Uni­ver­si­ties in sev­eral dis­ci­plines, such as dance, music, archi­tec­ture, envi­ron­men­tal sci­ences, psy­choa­coustics stud­ies and sonology.


I have joined the Memfest community becasue i am interested in

alternative effective forms of communication.
