For the FolgenD* meeting, Romily Alice Walden prepared a reader with a collection of links, ideas and further reading. You can receive the reader by writing us:

Romily Alice Walden's work questions contemporary western society's relationship with care, tenderness and fragility in relation to our bodies, our communities and our ecosystem. As a queer, disabled artist, Romily is interested in the production of the ‘other': exploring the power of ‘othered’ bodies to instigate changes in perception and normative cultural discourse. Romily Alice Walden's work is dealing among others with interdependency and vulnerability and their research topics incluce cyborg theory, disability theory, crip theory, queer theory and utopian/dystopian futures.

How political is Social Design?

Social Design, as its own claim is often formulated, wants to address social grievances and ideally change them.
