BK Talks: Disseminate. Present and future of editorial practice

This BK Talks will discuss the present and future of editorial practices in design, bringing to the table a group of renowned professionals from the publishing world.

In the realm of design journals and publications, the current pandemic seems to have just accelerated the ongoing shift towards a more networked approach to the profession. In this context, publishers, editors and critics have had to rethink their position, realising that traditional ideas of “dissemination” do not always correspond to ways in which we currently gather information.

On the one hand, the rise of more decentralised ways of publishing gave prominence to popular online platforms, where designers are able to upload their own content. However, this format can also result in an indirect manipulation by other interests beyond design.

While adapting to a present where we can easily search for new designs on the web, some widely-read publications have been prioritising alternative content: more politically engaged, multi-disciplinary and discursive. While strongly contributing to opening up architectural discourse in profound ways, this is also an approach that might fail to deliver clear messages and ideas on the subject of design, especially to the general public.

Is it significant to disseminate architectural knowledge and criticism to a mainstream public? If so, are we disseminating criticism throughout the right channels? How will the current transformations in the production and reception of information affect the format, as well as the content, of design publications?
