STUDIENGRUPPE INFORMATIONSDESIGN (SI)
Burg Giebichenstein, University of Art and Design

STATEMENT
Structure is power is unavoidable. The Studiengruppe Informationsdesign (SI) investigates the social and political potentials of design to articulate the conditions of today by responding to the past that today shapes our future, be it algorithmic or otherwise. The most underrated algorithm being to go talk to the people who deal with the problem every day, to work with them and to learn from them. SI focuses on design that is not only about social effects but equally the social conditions of its production. It attempts to be precise in descriptions but remains generous, humble and open in its choice of media, form and discourse. As a space for practical experiments, SI actively supports collaborative modes of production and reflection.
