Dear friends, allies and colleagues,

It has been a pleasure talking, discussing, collaborating, laughing, writing, searching and finding, looking, wandering, protesting, reading (aloud) and growing with you the past year!


Paul Steinmann and me designed the 360°-publication Who were we, you and I? for Junge Akademie der Künste, Berlin in the beginning of the year.

Caro Bräuer and Nannette Snoep invited me to design the campaign for the exhibition series COUNTER IMAGES | GEGENBILDER at Rautenstrauch-Joest-Museum Cologne and I had the pleasure to collaborate with Martha Schwindling for the corresponding exhibition architecture and graphics. Join us for the official opening event on 21. January (hopefully IRL)!

Together with Judith Leijdekkers I continued the Teaching Design Conversations with like-minded design educators, researchers and activists supported by our first ever official funding by the Stimuleringsfonds. In our upcoming conversations we talk with Benedetta Crippa and Johanna Lewengard as well as Alice Wong and Simpson Tse, amongst others. Stay tuned for more!

What would a different kind of design university look like? Mara Recklies and me wondered in our paper which was presented at the design symposium Kompliz*innen at BURG Halle, Trouble Wednesday – Queer and Feminist Perspectives on Design at FH Potsdam and printed as essay in form Magazine.

Finally on 2. December about fifty students of the Estonian Academy of Arts announced A NEW CURRICULUM after a 3-part digital workshop I facilitated. Find out about their ideas here.

If you fancy you can watch me dialoguing with Alice Twemlow about design and teaching at Design Museum Gent. And read my contribution Research as Care to the latest publication of Studio Experimentelles Design published at Sternberg Press.


Wether we haven’t seen each other in a while or just got off the phone seconds ago I am sending you the warmest wishes for the new year – and am looking forward to re-connecting, keeping in touch and catching up!
