Through a range of ongoing projects, we engage in proactive, future-oriented research
This project is an ongoing series of interactive exhibitions and workshops performed by an international team of researchers, students, activists, artists, computer scientists. By enacting curation as scientific lab experiments in public spaces, we explore the nexus of digital and material culture with a particular focus on activism and data literacy through critical pedagogy.
This project is designed to find and foster innovative methods for preserving digitally-mediated lived experience of 21st Century events. Using interventionist and action research research design, it addresses an urgent concern about regaining control of our future cultural histories.
How can academic researchers lend their intellectual strengths and energies to more directly help create better ethical futures?
This project focuses on developing methods for including more future-oriented or speculative elements in studies of socio-technical contexts and relations.
How might we think differently about our methods to better grapple with the complexity of 21st Century contexts? In 2013, this project was designed by Mads Rehder and Annette Markham to build momentum in the Nordic countries to innovate more radically in research methods for social and humanistic research.
