Fault Lines symposium 2018: Video recordings

2 October 2019

Video recordings of the presentations made during the KABK Annual Research Symposium 2018: Fault Lines held on 14 December 2018 at the Royal Academy of Art, The Hague (KABK).

Each year KABK makes provision for a selected group of participants to work on a self-defined research project in the context of a Research Group. The nature of these projects varies but all the projects emphasise practice-led research that uses design either as its subject matter or means for investigation. After a full year of research, the results are presented at the KABK Annual Research Symposium.

KABK Annual Research Symposium 2018: Fault Lines

The 2018 KABK Research Symposium, which took place on 14 December 2018, explored the interstitial positioning and generative potential of design research as the borders of disciplines shift, while presenting an array of research projects that map and interpret the traces of design’s complicity in climate change.
