Oh Hai! We are A Parede, a brazilian design research duo currently living in Berlin. Our research interests fall within decolonial thought, radical pedagogies, gender and sound studies.

Drop us a line for collaborations, requests, ideas and/or general friendliness: hello@a-pare.de

Hi! I’m a designer, researcher and all-around curious person interested in the intersections of feminism and speculative design. I completed my Bachelor studies in Design at PUC (Rio de Janeiro, Brasil); I also hold an MA in Digital Media from the Hochschule für Künste Bremen.

I am currently in the process of writing my Ph.D dissertation; its (very) temporary title is “Body extensions and the politics of designed artefacts”. My research focuses on how the objects, services and systems that we use to extend our bodies can both reflect and propagate gender oppression.

When not on research mode you can find me either cooking or sewing something, hopefully not the same thing.

You can email me at luiza@a-pare.de or follow my ramblings on Twitter.
