Please join MFA/CD at Texas State University's public lecture and Q+A with visiting designer Matthew Wizinsky! Matthew Wizinsky is a designer, researcher, educator, and author on contemporary issues in design practice and research. He has practiced graphic, interactive, exhibition, and experiential design in a variety of research, cultural, civic, and commercial contexts. His projects attempt to understand the kinds of futures that design imagines and produces, both intentionally and otherwise. His 2022 book 'Design after Capitalism' (MIT Press) argues for a reimagined design paradigm oriented toward deliberate transitions of everyday politics, social relations, and economies. Wizinsky is an Associate Professor of Urban Technology at the University of Michigan, PhD researcher in Transition Design at Carnegie Mellon University, and Associate Editor for 'Visible Language,' the longest running peer-reviewed design journal.
