Design Activism: A discussion across two generations

Ron Rael will join me for a discussion Thursday, September 25th from 6 to 8 pm at the Wurster Gallery as part of the Design Radicals: Creativity & Protest at Wurster Hall

The shock waves of Berkeley's Free Speech Movement of 1964 reverberated within Wurster Hall, transforming the College of Environmental Design into a laboratory for experiments in countercultural art and politics. Design Radicals surveys student and faculty ventures in the graphic art of anti-war protest, hands-on research into commune building and the creation of ecologically sustainable structures, and efforts to recast architecture, landscape architecture and community planning as participatory enterprises. In telling the story of Wurster Hall's Design Radicals, the rich holdings of the CED Archives and the privately held Dox Populi poster collection will provide inspiration for a new generation of design activists.
