co-AbilityResearch (RtD)CriticalSocialInnovationDigitalCraftPosthumanism

In her research, she examines the methodological approach of Research through Design(RtD) with a reflective and philosophic dimension of Critical Disability Studies.Renata Dezso is a Doctoral Candidate at Moholy-Nagy University of Art and Design, Budapest (MOME). 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, specializing in 3D printing. While she is focused on Design for Social Innovation and Sustainability (DESIS), which is a strand of design practice with objectives and processes to lay the foundations of social change, she introduced the term ‘co-Ability’ rooted in the critical approach of posthuman disability studies. 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.Renata also works to oversee, develop, and expand the MOME Object design BA at MOME Design Institute.
