De-centering English

HUDA ABIFARÈS, SANTI LAWRACHAWEE, AND ASAD PERVAIZ
FIRST FLOOR, DEPT. OF MAPPING MARGINS

We would need to move to a space of gesture and performance if we would want to imagine a de-colonial, critical graphic design. We would have to allow expression to erupt into poetry and storytelling as a way to contest normative forms of design. When different languages are involved, world-making becomes plural. For De-centering English, three designers come together to make sense of how the visual might be interpreted without relying on the structures that uphold linguistics. What multiplicity of forms emerge from such conversations? How do we map this diversity of overlapping margins?
