Salon Digital X Href zine - Cássia Vila & Charlotte Rohde
Lectureseries / 10.05.2021
A series of four salons that are curated by the techno-feminist publication series href zine. On the occasion of the second issue of href zine being released on landscapes, technoid natures, and symbioses:
The second issue of the href zine discovers and appreciates the other-than-human and the human to be embedded in the very same more-than-human spaces and landscapes. At the same time this issue assembles designed, written, emerged, read and printed landscapes, that derive their form from participation and contributions. Based on this initial situation our agenda to destabilize human exceptionalism and re-distribute agency, will firstly de-territorialize human technologies as indicators of superiority, and secondly to revise and rethink our human technologies as tools of re-connecting with the world. This issue of the href zine dreams of technoid natures, that are shared and inhabited by other-than-humans and humans, everything born, grown and made, mediated via technologies and practices.

Cássia Vila & Charlotte Rohde:
"Touchy topics and other handles"
Charlotte Rohde is a (type-)designer and artist, currently based in Amsterdam, recently graduated from the Sandberg Instituut Design Department.
Her work is rooted in research on type design as an extension of the body and how this can shape feminist discourses in society, specifically the creative sector. Her work ranges from designing my own typefaces, posters, and publications, to ceramic objects and spatial scenarios. Charlotte also writes poetry and essays, bakes bread, gives workshops and hosts various events.
Cássia Vila is a Brazilian graphic designer and obsessive journal keeper. Her self-driven practices reflect the duality of her matriarchal upbringing in the countryside and becoming an immigrant in globally woven times. Her work has been recognized by the Brazilian Graphic Design Biennale and the German's Stiftung Buchkunst. She noticed her hands at the age of 27, while studying a MA in the Hochschule für Künste Bremen.
