FUTURES OF DEMOCRACY?

Design Investigations, Universität für angewandte Kunst

27.9.–6.10.2019

Core democratic values that we take for granted in the Western world currently seem to be increasingly under fire. Digitalization, artificial intelligence as well as the growing importance of social media are in danger of weakening the independence of political authorities. How will democracy change before this background? What kind
of influence will the factors named above have for us as citizens? Students in Design Investigations at the University of Applied Arts Vienna, under the supervision of professor Anab Jain, guest teaching assistant and political scientist Denis Maksimov, and Nikolas Heep and Stefan Zinell, will examine these questions.
