Interface Politics

The Interface Politics Conference is about reflecting on the role and influence of interfaces within the universe of tools from the contemporary production system. How are the imaginaries related to creativity, politics, labour, economics and culture configured and created in the context of a universalised system of interfaces that is based on the promise of being natural, transparent, simple and accessible? What answers and actions can be articulated from design practices that aim to question the utopias arising from a form of communication that is increasingly subject to a culture of control? How can alliances be established between design, the field of critical thinking and action, and industrial and institutional narratives linked to technological theologies?
