Mike Monteiro: How to Fight Fascism
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
