Presented by Assemble Papers as part of Melbourne Design Week & Melbourne Art Book Fair
Gone are the days of the lone design critic. A changing media landscape has meant that discourse around design comes in all different forms – be it text, image, memes, Instagram or sound file, among others – and a multitude of voices. In a way, publishing itself has become a public space. The issues inherent in building public space and the publishing of words and thinking share the same concerns – among them accessibility, intersectionality, and authorship.
This event brings together young thinkers, design satirists and established publishers and editors to investigate how publishing design thinking is evolving.
