Student Voices from Designing the Survival Lounge, July 2020
Designing the Survival Lounge, an intersectional feminist design project.
by Students of the TU Berlin with Sarah Rivière, Hermann Schlimme & Helle Schröder.
The Survival Lounge project is a series of seminars focusing on the design, construction, and inhabitation of an intersectional feminist Survival Lounge inspired by Sara Ahmed’s book ‘Living a Feminist Life’. It is a Survival Lounge dedicated to the voices of the unheard.
In this book that you are holding in your hands you will read about the history behind its creation and learn about the whole design process. It tells the story of a group of people who worked collectively to design a Survival Lounge for their fellow students during a digital summer semester in 2020. It also gives an insight into the practical experience of an intersectional feminist design process.
Despite being physically separated, each behind a screen and in the middle of a pandemic, we united all our voices in this project, together more than ever.
