Double Bind, Decoloniality, the Question of Aesthetics

Show notes

In this session we will reflect on intersections and interstices between Bateson`s ecology of the mind and decoloniality with a special focus on the echoing yet different concepts of the double bind and differential or border consciousness.

These issues are directly linked to the onto-epistemic processes of sensing-knowing-making and therefore to decolonizing aesthetics through aesthesis, crucial for reimagining design of/by the South.

In the second part (Q&A session) we expand the discussion on the relationship between questions of aesthetics and decoloniality in relation to design/ architecture/artistic research and methods.
