Design and Digital Justice

This year's conference of the German Society for Design Theory and Research (DGTF) hosted in cooperation with the Berlin University of the Arts and the Weizenbaum Institute centers on the relationship between social justice, digital technologies and AI.

Under the heading “Design and Digital Justice”, this year’s DGTF conference is dedicated to current developments around digital technologies and AI. We want to address the question of how design influences society and contributes to digital (in)justice. From inclusion, anti-discrimination and anti-sexism to privacy and digital colonialism, there are many issues that we as designers and researchers need to address to ensure a fair and just digital future. The conference will offer perspectives from a variety of fields including design, technology, and social justice sharing insights on how we can promote digital justice in and through design. The conference is co-organized by the Weizenbaum research group Design, Diversity and New Commons
