Abstract [en]

Forms of Resistance, an experimental research platform shaped over 2010-2011 as Mahmoud Keshavarz’s M.F.A thesis in Experience Design Group at Konstfack, explores the role of ‘designer’ in socio-political interventions:

- Who is the designer/researcher in various stages of practice-based research in politically engaged design actions?

- How can she/he depart from her/his source of design knowledge in order to develop situated knowledge and reshape/resituate design for/to resistance and emancipation?

- How political forms of experience can be redistributed again through various positions, performances and transformations?

Forms of Resistance develops an approach to design which is both critical and investigative. Using both analytic frameworks and practice-based research, this experiment is developed by indisciplinary collaboration with groups of women activists in Iran and Sweden on the subject of domestic, public, physical or state violence.

Furthermore, through a ‘politics of translation’, the project itself makes a personal resistance to expectations of how a researcher should portray such subjects or make the research meaningful in ‘design aesthetics’, which may too often be complicit with societal mechanisms traditionally excluding or repressing excluded ones.

This book is conducted as the third experiment of the project.

Forms of Resistance is a collaboration with Change for Equality campaign, Ain’t I A Woman campaign and Design Research Unit of Interactive Institute.
