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.

Therefore we are very happy to publish the entire keynote here for everyone to share and read. Thank you, Robert Franken! Please support our young talents: notamuse – The Book   Keynote Robert Franken – all rights reserved Manuscript iphiGENIA Award Ceremony 2018 Ladies and gentlemen, good evening, it is truly an honor for me to be standing here and to be talking to you in the MAKK on a night that is celebrating excellence in design. I am already looking forward to learning more about the iphiGENIA laureates later this evening. This is gonna be fantastic. Standing here is a pretty exciting experience, too, since I do not have anything of relevance to say about design. The reason for that is easy: I am not a designer, not even close. What I am, is an activist. More or less. And, admittedly, I am an activist of privilege. My privilege is a privilege that I share with quite …
