Course description excerpt:

Black thought and culture and their crucial impact and influence on art and design is either overlooked or underrated in mainstream European academic and artistic cultural institutions. This workshop/course is designed to re-center and take inspiration from several Black key thinkers and creatives who have contributed to modern thinking whilst also offering important alternatives to eurocentric, elitist, patriarchal, “scientific”/ “academic”, binary ways of knowing, thinking and therefore: creating.
