Alt-Age: Designing Belief
Alt-Age: Designing Belief was a one-day festival of talks, live performances and moving image exploring how contemporary conspiracies and belief systems are born, broadcast and believed. Comprising free performances, artworks and film screenings in the Design Museum’s public atrium, a ticketed symposium in the Bakala Auditorium, and a free publication of commissioned texts and images, Alt-Age invited leading thinkers and practitioners across contemporary art, design and technology to question how conspiracies are building belief systems, communities and alternative bodies of authority. The festival confronted how the design of online platforms can be co-opted by different groups, and how that might be affecting the ways we communicate today.
