Vernacular thinking workshop

During the Stifung Kunstlerdorf Schoppingen Residency, I developed the workshop scenario titled “The Vernacular Thinking Workshop”, which I had an opportunity to conduct during the Kunstlerdorf’s monthly brunch with eight participants. The workshop proposed a series of exercises such as imagining, designing, drawing or telling stories to help explore the idea of vernacular thinking and vernacular strategies for approaching technology. These strategies subvert existing politics of technology that favor material and intellectual resources. At the same time, during the workshop, we were thinking about various models of connection with other animal beings, where speculative tools could be used to support environmental well-being.
