This lecture refers to otherness in traditional design and art canons and looks at the invisibility of Latin American/Latinx identities, cosmovisions, and voices in design education, with a focus on the female experience.

Erasure of non-white, non-male, non-western identities and cultures in design and art history and education helps perpetuate abusive and exclusionary design practices, which complicates sustainable, pluriversal, and decolonial design efforts in these regions and those related, such as Latinx communities in the United States and beyond.

As a response, this lecture invites design educators and students to disrupt traditional design canons and histories through visual storytelling, using creative and self-reflective methods to unearth and explore individual and unique knowledges, identities, and lived experiences.

This class is available to purchase individually, or at a discounted rate when the course pass is purchased.
