Racism is a system that is imagined, designed, and executed. Graphics, designed objects, and illustrations can function as indexes for these underlying structures and can possibly be re-designed. This is one of the main theories around a new area of study called critical race design studies. The purpose of this panel will be to examine race as a designed object and explore case studies of how some design educators are leading the charge in reconsidering race, design, and the black subject.
