To Whom it May Concern,
It has never been more important to think critically about the role of the graphic designer in society. How can our work actively respond to a world of uncertainty with clarity and empathy? What would it mean to make resistance an integral part of a design practice? What would it mean to treat every surface we design as a platform for political engagement?
This biennial exhibition takes the political present and graphic design as its subjects. It examines how we actively respond and give shape to content in times of political unrest and crisis. It is an exhibition of work, but more importantly, a call to action.
