*AIS/Design Call for Conference 2019*

*Italy: design, politics and democracy in the 20th century*

http://www.aisdesign.org/aisd/en/news/italia-design-politica-democrazia-nel-xx-secolo

The 20th century is the contemporary history timeframe within scholars are
invited to investigate the complexity of historical relations between
design and politics. Inserting us as design historians over the research
field that relates design and democracy and using the connection proposed
by Gui Bonsiepe between *critical humanism* and *operational humanism*, we
think it could be possible to propose a reconstruction of the theoretical
and operative spaces of design that intertwined, during the 20th century in
Italy, with that of one of politics, social debate and democracy.

The purpose is to bring out, through a design applied oriented hermeneutic,
the different subjective conditions of the referred Italian community in
relation with the transformation of political and social conditions,
starting from the presuppose that the design territory is placed into a
dialectic and dialogic dimension, that which involves – as already stated
by John Ruskin –, designer, production and society.

This interpretative action, made of individual and collective stories, into
which design and politics met up and collided, should allow to reconsider
the design role, also in its ideological aspects, as a result of a
political thought, indeed oriented to the design organization of the common
good.

*Politically conscious* abstracts are requested, about design actions and
history, that could define critical and operative fields of action
concerning design. Not only as operative or critical thoughts
transcriptions, but also as researches aimed to delineate the possibility
of an Italian design history hermeneutics of the 20th century addressed to
the comprehension of its relations with politics, democracy values and
their organization.

The call proposes two macro areas of intervention:

*1) Critical Humanism: “democracy and design” or design vs democracy /
disciplinary session: between history and critics /*

- general theoretical reflections: continuity and discontinuity of the
relation between design and democracy among the Italian contest (example:
congresses, magazines, debates);

- methodology and critics: Marxism and design “the boundaries” (example:
theoretical essays, protagonists);

- identity and tradition among design, democracy and history within Italian
design schools of the 20th century (example: courses, student’s essays,
collaborations between university and institutions);

- places and means – historically and geographically different or similar –
into which the dialog between design and democracy occurred (example:
relations with social design, participatory design);

*2) Operational Humanism: “political design” or design vs politics /
problematic session: between history and contemporaneity /*

- different identities of political design rooted within the 20th century
history that could become essential to the design for democracy into the
contemporaneity: *new political landscapes*.

- parallel histories of political design: *movements and manifests* (example:
public convenience design graphic, radical design);

- relation or divergences to be activated between actors from different
cultural positions, but that during an historical period interacts or
reacts with a precise idea of design for political and economic changings. *The
actors of change*.

*3) The fusion of the horizons: closing day with invitational round table*


The conference welcomes historical approaches, contemporary and
interdisciplinary topics. About these topics we invite those who are
interested to participate with an abstract proposal (title; name of the
author/s, affiliation and email; abstract length max 2500 characters) to be
sent to the AIS/Design Steering Committee (*[log in to unmask]
<[log in to unmask]>)* by January 31st 2019. The Steering Committee will
select the most coherent and significant proposals referring to the
presented topic with abstract acceptance by February 28th 2019.

*Location*: Castello del Valentino, Turin
*Important dates*: December 2018 call publication – January 31st 2019
abstracts deadline – February 28th 2019 abstracts acceptance
*Congress: *20-21 of June 2019
*Convenors*: Luciana Gunetti (Politecnico di Milano), Dario Scodeller

*AIS/Design Call for Conference 2019*

*Italia: design, politica e democrazia nel XX secolo*

Il XX secolo è l’arco temporale della storia contemporanea all’interno del
quale si invitano gli studiosi a esplorare la complessità delle relazioni
storiche tra progetto e politica. Innestandoci come storici del design sul
filone di ricerca che mette in relazione design e democrazia e utilizzando
la relazione proposta da Gui Bonsiepe tra *critical humanism* e *operational
humanism*, pensiamo sia possibile proporre una ricostruzione degli spazi
teorici ed operativi del design che si sono intrecciati nel XX secolo in
Italia con quelli della politica, del dibattito sociale e della democrazia.

L’obiettivo è quello di far emergere, attraverso un’azione ermeneutica
applicata al design, le differenti condizioni soggettive della comunità di
riferimento italiana nel suo porsi in rapporto alla trasformazione delle
condizioni politiche e dei modelli sociali, partendo dal presupposto che il
territorio del progetto è inserito in una dimensione dialettica e dialogica
che coinvolge, come già sosteneva John Ruskin, designer, produzione e
società.

Questa azione interpretativa di vicende individuali e collettive, in cui
progetto e politica si sono incontrati e scontrati, dovrebbe permettere di
riconsiderare la valenza del design, anche nei suoi aspetti ideologici,
come risultato di un pensiero politico, orientato cioè all’organizzazione
progettuale del bene comune.

Vengono richiesti contributi/abstract *politicamente consapevoli*, relativi
ad azioni sul progetto e sulla storia, che definiscano campi d’azione
critici ed operativi sul design. Non solo come trascrizioni di pensieri
operativi e di pensieri critici, ma come ricerche volte a delineare la
possibilità di un’ermeneutica della storia design Italiano del XX secolo
rivolta alla comprensione delle sue relazioni con la politica, i valori e
l’organizzazione della democrazia.

Sui due macro filoni della call si possono proporre:

*1)* *Umanesimo critico: “democrazie del design” o design vs democrazia /
giornata disciplinare: tra storia e critica /*

-  riflessioni teoriche generali: continuità e discontinuità della
relazione tra design e democrazia nel contesto italiano; (esempio:
convegni, riviste, dibattiti)

- metodologia e critica: Marxismo e design “i confini”; (esempio: saggi
teorici, protagonisti)

- identità e tradizione tra design, democrazia e storia nelle scuole di
design italiane del XX secolo; (esempio: corsi, saggi degli studenti,
collaborazioni delle università con le istituzioni)

-  i luoghi e i modi - differenti o simili geograficamente e storicamente -
in cui è avvenuto il dialogo tra design e democrazia; (esempio: relazioni
con il design per il sociale, progetto partecipato)

*2) Umanesimo operativo: “design politico” o design vs politica /* *giornata
sulle problematiche: tra storia e contemporaneità* /

– le diverse identità del design politico radicate nella storia del XX
secolo che possano divenire uno strumento vitale per il design per la
democrazia nella contemporaneità: *new political landscapes.*

- le storie parallele del design politico: *i movimenti e i manifesti*.
(esempio: dalla grafica di pubblica utilità al radical design);

- le relazioni o le divergenze da attivare tra personaggi con differenti
posizioni culturali, ma che in una fase storica interagiscono o reagiscono
con un’idea precisa di design ai cambiamenti politici ed economici. *Gli
attori del cambiamento*.

*3) Fusione di orizzonti:* *chiusura con tavola rotonda su invito*


La conferenza accoglie approcci storici, contemporanei e interdisciplinari
all’argomento. Su questi temi invitiamo coloro che sono interessati a
partecipare a presentare una proposta con un abstract (titolo proposta;
nome, affiliazione e email autore/i; abstract max 2500 battute) da inviare
al Comitato Direttivo AIS/Design ([log in to unmask]) entro il *31 gennaio
2019*, il CD selezionerà i contributi più coerenti e significativi rispetto
al tema presentato e l’accettazione entro il *28 febbraio 2019*.

*Location*: Castello del Valentino, Torino
*Date*: dicembre 2018 pubblicazione call – 31 gennaio 2019 deadline
abstract – 28 febbraio 2019 accettazione abstract
*Convegno: 20-21 giugno 2019*
*Convenor*: Luciana Gunetti (Politecnico di Milano), Dario Scodeller
