GENDER BENDING THROUGH DESIGN - AN ACCOUNT OF A STUDENT PROJECT ON GENDER

Lena Hansson, Marcus Jahnke

Abstract


This article deals with an explorative student project which was conducted as part of a consumer research project on gender in design. In the project master students in design explored and reflected on gender issues through practice, and the resulting objects were assembled into a public exhibition. Departing from gender theory we describe and reflect on the experiences of the students and the reactions to the objects and the exhibition.
