Dutch research and design studio Metahaven will be in conversation with Harry Burke, discussing projects both past and present and presenting their new Strelka Press released e-book project: Can Jokes Bring Down Governments? Memes, Design and Politics.
Metahaven is founded by Vinca Kruk and Daniel van der Velden, their work reflects political and social issues in provocative graphic design objects. Their projects often test the limits of what might be considered “design” and investigate different modes of presenting research with recent two-part essay Captives of the Cloud (e-flux) and their 2010 book, Unincorporate Identity demonstrating their ambitious scope.
Harry Burke is a writer and curator based in London. He has written for rhizome.org, Arcadia Missa Publications and Fulcrum, a publication based at the Architectural Association, and curated the exhibition Net Narrative at Carlos/Ishikawa.
