How could subversive imagination be a trigger for transforming the current environmental, political and cultural crisis into desirable futures? The Master in Critical Design at Elisava explores the instrumentalization of critical design in the creation of an impactful change within specific spatial context.  


It combines theoretical study, research investigation and practical work led by international architects, thinkers, artists, activists, curators and publishers. Students will acquire a broad set of perspectives on key challenges of our times and tools to add to the international conversation on geopolitics, spatial justice, environmental activism, care, identity politics, feminist studies and practices, climate justice, extractivism, non-human rights, political art and design, critical architecture or urban radical alternatives.
