The Design & the Deep Future Research Group is pleased to invite you to an afternoon of exchange centred on our projects-in-progress and collective thinking around art, design, research and climate justice.

Chaired by Alice Twemlow, research professor at KABK, the group comprises five KABK tutors, whose research practices engage with geological time and climate crisis. We meet every few weeks in each other’s studios to engage with the work, read texts, write and think with each other through the doubts, dilemmas and complexities of our individual projects and the methodological or thematic composite that connects us.

For this event, we will be joined live at West Den Haag by some of our students and colleagues from KABK and by keynote speakers, who we have invited to help frame and contextualise our work. The event will be livestreamed, so feel free to join in at any time!
