Mike Monteiro: How to Fight Fascism

MIke Monteiro argues that ‘design is always political’. Come and be inspired to action by this powerful advocate for design responsibility.

What to expect

To coincide with the Design Museum's exhibition, Hope to Nope: Graphics and politics 2008-18, writer and director of Mule Design Studio, Mike Monteiro, reflects on design strategies for fighting fascism.

All design is political, because all politics are designed. The world is a mess because a certain set of people designed it to be a mess. Now we need a different set of people to design our way out of it. This is not a choice. Regardless of whether this is what we wanted or not fascism is knocking on our front door. This is how we knock back. - Mike Monteiro
