Oct 24, '18 11:44 AM EST

Join us Saturday, October 27th at 4:00pm for a Discussion and Book Signing with TIM DURFEE and MIMI ZEIGER for the new book: "Made Up: Design's Fictions".

We are also pleased to have lined-up two guests, who will chat with us about the book for the event:  Laurel Broughton, architect, designer WELCOMEPROJECTS and Geoff Manaugh, author, A Burglar's Guide to the CityBLDGBLOG.

Book Description:

At a time when “fake news” is part of our daily cultural lexicon, Made Up: Design’s Fictions explores lies, fantasies, and other un-real scenarios as tools of design.

Through essays, interviews, and narratives by Bruce Sterling, Fiona Raby, Sam Jacob and other significant voices in the field, this volume questions the initial discourses around “design fiction”—a broad category of critical design that includes overlapping interests in science fiction, world building, speculation, and futuring. Made Up: Design’s Fictions advances contemporary analysis and enactment of narrative and speculation as an important part of practice today.

Essays, interviews, and narratives by: Julian Bleecker, Benjamin H. Bratton, Anne Burdick, Emmet Byrne, Stuart Candy, Fiona Raby, Tim Durfee, Sam Jacob, Norman M. Klein, Peter Lunenfeld, Geoff Manaugh, Tom Marble, m-a-u-s-e-r, Metahaven, China Miéville, Keith Mitnick, MOS, Susanna Schouweiler, Bruce Sterling, Mimi Zeiger.
