Ezio Manzini: Politics of the Everyday

 

An expert on social innovation and sustainable design, Ezio Manzini proposes a radical overhaul in how we as individuals spend our time, and in what we value. He argues that individuals can change society by choosing different policies for their own lives, and that designers can use their competencies and collaborative attitudes to create socially and environmentally regenerative ways of living.


Drawing from his book, Politics of the Everyday (Bloomsbury 2019), the celebrated design theorist will discuss how solitude and collaboration affect our life projects and can either confirm or transform our sociotechnical systems.
When designers focus on designing collaboratively for community infrastructure change, they can leverage and scale design capabilities so that systems continue to adapt and change well after the design intervention. Following the talk, a panel of social innovation activists, institutional representatives, and academic researchers will engage Ezio in a discussion of the current social innovation landscape in Chicago and the role of ID, Illinois Tech, and other higher education institutions in that landscape.
