Session 16: Pia Lindman

This video was recorded at MIT 4.370 Interrogative Design Workshop - Fall 2005. "Parrhesia" was an Athenian right to frank and open speaking, the right that, like the First Amendment, demands a "fearless speaker" who must challenge political powers with criticism and unsolicited advice. Can designer and artist respond today to such a democratic call and demand? Is it possible to do so despite the (increasing) restrictions imposed on our liberties today? Can the designer or public artist operate as a proactive "parrhesiatic" agent and contribute to the protection, development and dissemination of "fearless speaking" in Public Space? Course Highlights This course features a set of exemplary video lectures as well as a selection of student projects and images in the image gallery.
