Can fictional design lead to solutions to social problems? What is the point of design fiction if the alternative is feasible? Is this a new hype for designers? Or is fictional design a mere alternative view to social problems? These were some of the questions raised during the second edition of Toekomstplanners at Pakhuis de Zwijger cultural organization in Amsterdam. Among the participants, NNN Fellows Floris Kaayk, Mike Thompson and Susana Camara Leret joined the debate on design fiction.

Joyce Nabuurs: To me this question seems to be a logical next step in the emancipation movement of the past century. More and more women entered the workspace, but the responsibility for pregnancy and childrearing remained female.
