1 - Decolonializing Design - Masterclass
Mainstream design discourse has been dominated by a focus on Anglocentric/Eurocentric ways of seeing, knowing, and acting in the world. Little attention is being paid to alternative and marginalized discourses from the non-Anglo-European sphere, or the nature and consequences of design-as-politics today. Decolonial design asks how do we understand and critically reflect on the politics of design practice, and on the politics of the artifacts, systems, and practices that designerly activity produces.
