Playing Decision-Making (2014)

In this participatory lecture performance Kowalski wanted to find out if the motivation to take part in collective decision-making increases when using different kinds of decision-making procedures. In order to inquire into voting processes, she tested different decision-making formats with children and adults on as-if decisions: voting by lights, voting by standing in different fields on the ground, voting with laser pointers, voting with gestures, voting on an unstable decision-making platform (Entscheidungsebene) and voting with a digital online tool. A questionnaire was added, in which the participants were asked to evaluate the different procedures. Hannah Kowalski, Playing Decision-Making, 2014, Hamburg
