Critical design in socialist Yugoslavia

College: Central Saint Martins
Supervisors: Dr Matt Malpass, James Swinson


This research tracks the origins of critical design in former socialist Yugoslavia. It will identify and map the practices, methods and tactics employed, and build on these insights to redefine the historical narrative and offer a methodology toolkit for categorizing the practice outside of the Western context. This inquiry will make a contribution to the field of design studies by expanding the definition of critical design beyond its current Western-centric context.
