Governing through Design is a collaborative research project that investigates how design impacts society. We use history and ethnography to develop new narratives of how the practices and epistemologies of design reconceive global politics and everyday lifeworlds, and invest in pedagogies that seek to intervene in contemporary practices of design.

Governing through Design is a collaborative research project by the FHNW Academy of Art and Design, the University of Basel, and Concordia University Montreal. Besides our own faculty members, the team is composed of Claudia Mareis, Orit Halpern, Anke Gruendel, Chris Salter, Yuriko Furuhata, Johannes Bruder, Tania Messell, Michael Fisch, Jan Dutkiewicz and Ceyda Yolgormez.
