Portrait of Alice Twemlow

Prof Dr Alice Twemlow

Design and the Deep Future (In-person keynote)

Alice Twemlow is a Professor in the Wim Crouwel Chair in the History, Theory and Sociology of Graphic Design and Visual Culture at the University of Amsterdam and a Research Professor at the Royal Academy of Art, The Hague (KABK). Her research, situated at the intersection of environmental humanities, design history, and artistic research, addresses design and its aftermaths in the context of geological time, as it manifests, for example, in space junk and digital waste. With Design and the Deep Future, a long-term and collective project based at KABK, she aims to contribute alternative interpretations, interventions and imaginaries to climate justice research. Twemlow’s book, Sifting the Trash: A History of Design Criticism, was published by MIT Press in 2017.  www.alicetwemlow.com
