Corrrective is a design collective of seven recent graduates of Central Saint Martins whose practice subverts that which is oppressive, and challenge and disrupt what is seen as the norm. Armed with a mindset that lies at the intersection of feminism and queerness, they individually explore topics such as gender binaries, queer politics, decolonisation and their representation within the mainstream. Through a multidisciplinary approach, they aim to come together as a force for change.

Review (past norms), React (in a creative way), Reform (adjust by giving an alternative)

Work featured in collage: 

Ellen Jonsson
Radical Bodies: The Gendered Gaze in Photographic Art. Ellen's
 essay is an attempt to clarify concepts of the gendered gaze from a contemporary queer feminist perspective. In the age of post-binary, is there still reason to gender the gaze?

Anoushka Khandwala
Anoushka’s work deconstructs and challenges existing norms within the design industry. She is interested in the intersection of decolonization and design, which manifests in vibrant, colorful photo-illustrations, subverting dominant Eurocentric ideals. 

Elizabeth Critchlow
Inspired by the impact the AIDS crisis had on the club culture of 80s and 90s in New York, It Was Not Acceptable In The 80s aims to contextualize this crisis and make it relatable to young LGBT people today.

Alva Skog
Alva's ‘Future Identities’ investigates what identity positions could look like in the future. Will there be genders? Inspired by feminist science fiction such as Woman on the edge of time by Marge Piercy, she has illustrated these identities in a fictional future. 

Irene Albino
Irene’s dissertation explores the possibility of a genderless society and the designers that challenged the notion of gender in their practices. From the anthropologists and biologists that questioned the existence of only two genders to the technological utopia of genderless AI. Irene's practice focuses on research, design narratives and the intersection of craft and design.

Etta Voorsanger-Brill
Etta’s dissertation deals with trying to create a reliable narrative for women throughout history, using ephemera as evidence. Etta is a London based Graphic Designer & Printmaker. Her work centers around the intersection of typography, risography and Feminism. Her graphic language remains playful and bright while exploring graphic designs contribution to equality.

Emily Rowland
Working with the staff at Bletchley Park, Emily created a Risographed poster to highlight and celebrate the contributions and achievements of the 75,000 women who were part of the Women's Royal Naval Service in WW1 and WW2. Their work is rooted in anthropology, and uses a collaboration of digital and traditional mediums to explore and document social behaviors, gender, sexuality and feminism.
