Dr. Seba Ali – We are going through massive transitions (Video)

We are very happy to start our series of video statements about gender, design, the present and future situation. The iphiGenia Gender Design Award 2020 #iphi2020 was postponed due to Covid-19.

iphi2020 postponed

As you may have already guessed the board and the activist group in Cologne of the iGDN, after long discussions, decided: this year’s edition of the iphi award must be postponded. At the moment, we are not able to foresee whether it will be possible to hold the award ceremony in the usual way. Furthermore, we think that a digital version would not be an adequate replacement because both the award ceremony and the supporting programme are very much defined by coming together, exchanging thoughts and ideas and sharing a great night. We do, however, continue to collect entries through our website, iphi-award.org, and from our Research Committee international (RCi). The next jury session is also postponed and will take place in spring 2021. The jury will consider all entries from this year and from 2021. We are confident that we will be able to have a great, cheerful and glamorous award ceremony again in the autumn of 2021. We wish you all the very best, and let’s stay in „touch“ (strange word meanwhile).

SYMPOSIUM: TRANS/ FEMINIST HACKING Spaces, Communities, Practices 12.12.19- 13.12.19

Trans/feminist hacking is a hybrid, nomadic and ever-changing practice embodied through diverse communities – people living continents apart are sharing ideas, concepts, positions and attitudes, enriching them with their local spirit and historical knowledge.This symposium gathers reflections, experiences and positions on trans/feminist hackspaces, communities and practices in order to discuss the chances as well as current challenges, detect patterns among groups and to eventually formulate common lines of thought. Within the framework of this gathering, we would like to address questions of how we can articulate these insights, and how we can practice them through art and design, open source development, community building, academia and activism.

#iphi2019 winners – iphiGenia Gender Design Award 2019

#iphi2019 Winners: International and Diverse

This year’s iphi winners come from Amsterdam, Beirut and San Francisco – three iphi2019 winners, three continents, but one overarching theme: their work represents smart design, free from (or against) stereotypes and it’s for this that they are being recognized. With the 2019 iphiGenia Gender Design Awards, the iGDN as the organizer of the prize has shown the significance of integrating gender issues in design.

Our #iphi2019 winners share the same intention: using design to make gender prejudices and ignorance visible, to highlight diversity and to express the untold.

The winners’ work and the
effect this kind of work has on consumers, clients and students has shown us
that gender issues have to be classified at the same level as human rights and
that, with design, we can do a lot to move things forward.
