Design4Debate - Debating Design (D4D)

The requirements not only for fashion design but design, in general, have intensified through societal demands and been catalyzed by extremely agile critique cultures in the broader issue networks of social media. Designing today means meeting highly complex demands of sustainability, inclusivity, and diversity. We question norms of design project presentation or in-class discussion by suggesting, instead of hoping for applause or dealing with unbalanced word contributions, initiating and experimenting with the dynamics of debating.

In the research project Design4Debate, a workshop is elaborated. Participants decide collaboratively on a current issue and enact an actual debate in divided roles by changing perspectives and putting all arguments on the table.
