It’s All Graphic 2022: Critical Interventions in the (Graphic Design) Archive
Presented by the Wim Crouwel Institute at Pakhuis de Zwijger
Thursday 1 December, 20:00-22:00 

The Wim Crouwel Institute encourages fresh perspectives on the links between graphic design’s heritage and contemporary practice. It is particularly interested in how graphic design history can be understood in the light of today’s pressing socio-political issues. 

For this year’s ‘It’s All Graphic’, scheduled to follow Prof. Dr. Alice Twemlow's inaugural lecture at the University of Amsterdam, the invited speakers address the role of graphic design in decolonizing, depatriarchalizing, and other reframings of the archive. 

Moderated by Alice Twemlow and Roosje Klap, the speakers are: 

Syrian Graphic Design Archive (Kinda Ghannoum and Sally Alassafen, with Hala Al Afsaa joining online)
Basma Hamdy
, designer and researcher in Egyptian visual culture
Grafis Nusantara
Tabea Nixdorff
, curator, Feminist Design Strategies
Remco van Bladel, co-founder, Archival Consciousness
Alice Wong, media-artist-in-residence, Open Archive 3.0

Venue: Pakhuis Zwijger, Piet Heinkade 179, Amsterdam
