Dr Åsa Ståhl & Dr Kristina Lindström

Åsa Ståhl is a senior lecturer in design at Linnaeus University, Växjö, Sweden. Kristina Lindström is a senior lecturer in design at the School of Arts and Communication at Malmö University, Sweden. In 2014 they defended their collaborative PhD thesis, across the disciplines of Media and Communication Studies and Interaction Design at Malmö University.

Since then they have also done a joint postdoc at Umeå Institute of Design, Umeå University as well as conducted artistic research in the international, transdisciplinary and collaborative project HYBRID MATTERs, where they explored past present and future imaginaries of plastics. Ståhl and Lindström currently run the Un/Making Studio, financed by the Swedish Research Council, with the aim of exploring alternatives to progressivist and anthropocentric ways of thinking and making within design.

With a base in participatory and speculative design in combination with feminist technoscience their work engages with publics in many ways throughout their research process and exhibition makings.
