Pivot 2021 focuses on the tools that we might design and use to dismantle the structures of the current civilizational model (patriarchal capitalist modernity) and to reassemble the debris into new models, converting debris into the nurturing humus for worlds in the making. By tools, we refer to not only artifacts but also to services, symbols, rules, institutions, policies, pedagogies, systems, environments.
