The political body as a fulcrum for radical imagination in metadesign

Abstract: The political role of the body in metadesign is often underestimated, due to a lack of imagination regarding contemporary body and identity politics. This research reports on a democratic design experiment organized by design students to unleash radical imagination in metadesign. Students imagined a socially engaged design practice that welcomed dissensus as a source of creativity and diversity. This empirical concept emerged from the activation of the political body as a fulcrum for collectively imagining future scenarios.
