Renata Dezso

Practitioner at EU Craft Hub: Maker Exchange Residencies virtual residency program in 2021.

Renata Dezso is a Doctoral Candidate at Moholy-Nagy University of Art and Design, Budapest (MOME). In her research, she examines the methodological approach of Research through Design(RtD) with a reflective and philosophic dimension of Critical Disability Studies. Her work points to the junctures where technology, bodies, and cultural theory intersect to understand the unconscious elements in posthuman transformations. Her research experience includes Critical Technical Practice (CTP) on the use of technology and the design of technology grounded in Digital Craft. Renata also works to oversee, develop, and expand the MOME Object design BA at MOME Design Institute.

I introduce the term of ‘co-Ability’ that is rooted in the critical approach of posthuman disability studies outlined by scholars such as Rosi Braidotti. It serves as a broad umbrella term under which we can reconsider the potentials of various entities (biological and artificial) enhancing the shared competence rather than dwelling on the oppressive nature of human-centred norms.
