DSGN-IN: Design criticism from grassroots and decolonial perspectives

New Urban collective en The Black Archives, 2021

€110.000
'DSGN-IN: Design criticism from grassroots and decolonial perspectives' is an open call where designers are invited to develop innovative design critiques and methodologies from a decolonial and intersectional perspective. By scrutinizing the reproduction of social inequality, The Black Archives aims to stimulate progressive social change. The DSGN-IN project consists of two parts. The first part concerns the exhibition 'Facing Blackness', in which three selected designers carry out design research into colonial representation, based on the hidden history of the anti-Zwarte Piet and anti-racism movement. Based on the research, the designers will create new work and organize an exhibition at The Black Archives in Amsterdam Oost. The second part, 'Bijlmer Dossier', focuses on the area development and gentrification of Amsterdam Zuidoost. Three designers are invited to conduct design research into the mechanisms of exclusion within area development in Amsterdam Zuidoost and to develop alternative perspectives on the basis of this research. The results of this process will be brought together in a memorandum. During the research period, six designers will be supported by artistic adviser Serana Angelista and spatial adviser Wouter Pocornie (26H).
