Welcome to our platform for speculative design, design sociology, pop culture theory and accelerationism.

Speculative accelerationism (spec/acc or Sx.) is a way to cherish Fredric Jameson’s Baroque Sunbursts and take them as starting points. We use them to question current values and the status quo. Speculation is a tool to explore alternative realities. For us, it is closely related to the field of design sociology.

Our former publication is over here. We curate a list of links to inspirational sources. Our introduction to speculative design is here (beware: it’s an older course and needs to be updated). We participate in the minor program Speculative Design at Maastricht Institute of Arts.
