Design and its white (cis) male heritage: how to make design more inclusive?
Design has always been marked by a white CIS male stamp. Already during the era of the Bauhaus women were directed to weaving or ceramics which were believed to be more suitable for women. Gender and race stereotypes are very strong in the design sphere. The resurgence of indegenous design and the merging of the craft, art and design disciplines are welcome ways to make this world more inclusive. What can be done concretely to tackle this? Kristen De La Vallière, design curator and editor of say hi to_, speaks to Simone Brewster, spatial designer and artist, Prince Jewiti, co-founder of Artskop3437, the new african art and design powerhouse and Amanda Pinatih, Design Curator at the Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam and co-founder of the Design Museum Dharavi in Mumbai, India.
