Titel på avhandling: 
Opening the Space of Experience: design, the political and undocumentedness
Beskrivning av avhandling: 

This project, through a series of design experiments, examines the possibilities of doing design in an ‘emergency situation’.  An emergency situation of undocumented  immigrants who have been forced to live in a particular aesthetics of space/time, a particular orchestration of experience; a particular form of life: naked life.
This research asks a main question which includes several situated questions, criticisms and pessimisms both within design discourse and socio-political discourses:
Can design, by being critical towards its ramparts, such as knowledge, methodology and institution, contribute to a new aesthetics of space/time in which marginal groups like undocumented immigrants will be able to critically intervene to the status quo?
 
The doing of design in this way questions the approach of criticality in design as well as criticality toward the status quo, the policing society. The project through an ‘indisciplinary’ space of action sets a series of experiments in Malmö as well as some other European cities.
