Post Design Tangle, chapter 4: Power




07:53 – 07:53

With: Design Museum

8-9 September 2023

Designmuseo, Helsinki, Finland


Post Design Tangle is a cluster of four thematically connected design festivals taking place around the Nordics, which investigate the politics of image making, the ethics of design, and the working life of the visual communicator through discursive events, workshops, exhibitions, and an online editorial platform.

The fourth chapter, POWER, will take place from 8–9 September 2023 at Designmuseo in central Helsinki, bringing together design thinkers, makers and doers from across the world for a last tangle. Together with our project partner, Grafia, we will examine and discuss the complex power relations within visual communication.

Design often finds itself tasked with constructing an illusion of authority and control—tangible and intangible. What are the boundaries of our agency as visual makers? What forces are enmeshed in, and perpetuated by creative practices, creative work structures and the images we produce and consume?

International speaker line-up: Noura Tafeche (IT/PL), Manuel Raeder (DE), Chiara Di Leone (UK/IT), Other Means (US) and Laura Pappa (EE).

For social events, the festival is partnering up with kind and powerful local forces: 

Warm-up event hosted by Multipöly. Afterparty by MYÖS Collective.

Affordable tickets + discounts for students and members of Grafia. All activities are included in the festival ticket.
