We’re excited to once again welcome Matthew Wizinsky for a talk and workshop on his new book from MIT Press, Design After Capitalism (2022)
Wizinsky will give a brief discussion on the book ‘Design after Capitalsm’ followed by a mini-workshop on some of the key ideas. The workshop will emphasize the practical aspects of the book, engaging participants with guidelines for shifting design approaches at the scale of the project, the practice, and the discipline. Plus, postcapitalism memes!
You can view the previous talk that he did with us here.
