We were invited to contribute to GRAPHIC magazine issue #47.
"Working with visual media we have a responsibility for visibility and invisibility. We must address the visual regime we live with."
Issue #47 of GRAPHIC brings together several projects by designers, design researchers, and artists who are concerned with contemporary social issues. In response to the 2016 Paris Agreement, the environmental group Extinction Rebellion (XR) was launched in 2018. In 2017, the Me Too movement erupted on social media with the hashtag #MeToo. The year 2019 witnessed the death of George Floyd and Hong Kong’s democracy movement. Since early 2020, the whole world has been affected by the coronavirus. GRAPHIC invited 10 teams that approach such contemporary issues from various angles and provided them with 16 pages so that they could convey their research areas.
"The role of visual practice is contrary to aestheticizing the crisis."
