16-19 April 2018

LatinAmerican Centered Speculative Design is a discursive intervention in the form of an open conference. The conference is composed of two mediated panels and a lecture that seek, as a whole, to reflect about Speculative Design as a potential area of knowledge, political practice and art from the point of view of Latin American avantgarde movements. "LACES(D)" focuses on the public debate and live construction of a working diagram of contemporary critical issues and its unfoldings in fields of Media, Architecture, History and Art, proposing a shift of perspective, even if temporary, in the disciplines of design.
