5th NERD Conference
New Experimental Research in Design

Especially in unraveling times of crisis like these, new perspectives, ways of thinking and forms of action are indispensable in order to negotiate possible pathways and futures. The 5th NERD conference discusses experimental design research projects across the areas of critical AI, decolonial design and human/nonhuman design, and debates the re/positioning of the field of design research. Developed and realised by the Board of International Research in Design (BIRD) at Birkhäuser Publishing House, the 5th NERD conference will be carried out in collaboration with the Berlin University of the Arts (Weizenbaum Institute) and the Technische Universität Berlin (Einstein Center Digital Future).

Conference Committee: Michelle Christensen, Florian Conradi, Uta Brandes, Tom Bieling, Sandra Groll, Ralf Michel, Wolfgang Jonas, Marc Pfaff

Conference Team / Berlin: Michelle Christensen, Florian Conradi, Ines Weigand, Berkay Soykan, Athena Grandis (Weizenbaum Institute / UdK Berlin + Einstein Center Digital Future / TU Berlin)
