Latin-American Centered Speculative Design was a discursive intervention in the form of an open conference held at the Visual Arts Department of the University of California, San Diego, from April 16th to April 19th, 2018. The conference was composed of two mediated panels and a lecture that seeked, as a whole, to reflect about Speculative Design as a potential area of knowledge, political practice and art from the point of view of Latin American avant-garde movements. "LACES(D)" focused on the public debate and live construction of a working diagram of contemporary critical issues and its unfoldings in fields of Media, Architecture, History and Art, proposing a shift of perspective, even if temporary, in the disciplines of design.
