This compact pocketsize hott of the press little book comprises seventeen essays written by designers and artists from the [Temporary Program 2020-2022] Disarming Design Department of Sandberg Instituut [NL] to celebrate their two year program.
Engaged in social, material, and political struggles, the individuals retell their personal histories, writing across objects, events, places, and habits. By performing research through writing, they sense and transform the poetics and politics of the everyday. Spanning language, typography, aesthetics, weaving, cooking, landscape, speculation, and pedagogies, the essays offer perspectives in thinking about art and design as emancipatory politics and as a practice of hope – making what is deemed impossible, possible.
