Politics of Design includes six projects by emerging designers and design teams who employ design methodologies to communicate political ideas, demonstrate design’s potential for protest and resistance, and/or examine or adapt the ways we use objects and space. From graphic to industrial and inclusive design, rapid prototyping methods to handmade ceramics and wheat-pasted posters, these projects explore how design maintains the power to both influence and represent our lives, as well as instigate social change.
