trafo.K

trafo.K is an office based in Vienna working in the fields of art education and critical knowledge production. In our projects we question things perceived as simply given and we intervene in the existing relations and, more often than not, using unexpected strategies. We are interested in revealing the structures of media and institutions and in creating public awareness for alternative (hi)stories and images. By doing so, we are concerned with finding out what emerges when different forms of knowledge, artistic strategies and socially relevant themes converge. Our projects are based on collective, emancipatory processes, which allow different perspectives to come into contact and open up new spaces of agency.

Systems + Design

Systems + Design | (SPAN) Research List on Citizen Journalism and Media Activism | Scoop.it
Institutional and organizational logics necessarily constrain and define civic actions, so the design of systems is an important site of intervention. This section presents cases where the infrastructure of civic life is considered and manipulated to produce specific civic outcomes. From organizing hackathons to government procurement and the use of open data, from small tweaks to massive overhauls, the systems that facilitate civic life hold powerful opportunities for change.

"A well-functioning democracy requires a healthy ecosystem of truth-tellers,” said David Lazer, Distinguished Professor of Political Science and Computer and Information Science at Northeastern and co-director of the university’s NULab for Texts, Maps, and Networks. “Citizens need to be informed, and we need institutions to communicate what’s happening in the world. In a democracy, we have to respect these enduring differences in a body politick, but the fact that there’s legitimate diversity doesn’t mean that all presentations of reality are legitimate.”
