URGENTCRAFT (2019)


Risograph print, 2019


URGENTCRAFT is a set of principles that works to resist oppression-based design ideologies, especially in art and design education. URGENTCRAFT isn’t a manifesto, but rather a constellation of tactics — a series of incomplete observations. A note to self. A reminder that we can use art and design to loosen hegemonic power.
The print was originally made to accompany the talk “URGENCRAFT,” delivered at the eyeo festival in June 2019. The talk outlines these principles and provides examples of artists and writers who manifest these ideas. It was reprinted as an edition of 200 in August 2019 and included in QUEER.ARCHIVE.WORK #3 for distribution at the NY Art Book Fair.
