Book launch ‘What Design Can’t Do’
Join us on Saturday 18 November for the launch of new book by Silvio Lorusso entitled What Design Can’t Do, followed by a discussion with Silvio and Rotterdam based collective Extra-Practice and Clara Balaguer.
Design is broken. Young and not-so-young designers are becoming increasingly aware of this. Many feel impotent: they were told they had the tools to make the world a better place, but instead the world takes its toll on them. This book probes the disillusionment that permeates design. To depict this disheartening crisis, he crafts a new critical vocabulary for readers to build upon.
There will also be delicious tajines by De Duurzame Wereldkeuken available after the book launch, as the opening of Occult Economics begins.

In Thoughts, Together: craft, tradition, cosmopolite life’ as a nod to the book.
Set Margins’ is developing a book with Swedish designer Fadhel Mourali. In his work, Fadhel combines traditional Swedish craft, personal history and diversity, where his great-grandfather was a skilled basket maker, and he himself is a contemporary designer of mixed origin. Alongside the exhibition at Form/Design Center Malmo, featuring his work, Freek Lomme (Set Margins’) and Fadhel will present work, and discuss pathways through craft, bookmaking, storytelling and engagement.
We hope for nice openings in ideas and imaginings together; feel free to join if you are around. Freek might also bring books to show, and to sell.

Book Launch ‘Virophilia’

The graphic designer, Lisa Ladent, and Set Margins’ Freek Lomme will also be present.
The launch is part in the Printroom program ‘Books Are Bridges Art Book Fest‘, which is part of the second Books Are Bridges Publishing Summit, that brings together and links international and local publishing platforms to exchange ideas and strengthen the support structures that we build to create a publishing community.
What models do we use to gather around publishing and zine-making and what do we wish to develop in the coming years? How can we (continue to) provide space and attention for not-so-loud voices? Together we will reflect on how to maintain and grow our networks and care for ourselves, so that we can continue to nourish our communities. Three days to share time and care: to think, make and play together during workshops, shared meals, presentations, conversations, and a Fabulous Art Book Fest.
The Books Are Bridges Publishing Summit is developed by PrintRoom (Karin de Jong and team) in collaboration with Rose Nordin and Eleanor Vonne Brown. The title Books Are Bridges is inspired by the publishing practice of Claudia de la Torre. The logo is designed by José Quintanar. The flyer, poster and booklet are designed by Dongyoung Lee.

Book Launch ‘To Live As An Asian Woman’
Together with Limestone Books Maastricht we present:
‘Book Launch—’To live as an Asian Woman’ by Seulbin Roh
29 June 2023 (Thur.)
Location: Limestone Books Maastricht.
Seulbin Roh, an Asian woman born in Germany and residing in Europe, has experienced and observed instances of racist sexual objectification. Whenever she speaks out against such incidents, she finds that while most individuals stand in solidarity with her, some respond with aggression, either by scoffing or dismissing her. As an Asian female artist, Seulbin feels a strong sense of responsibility to address racial discrimination through her artwork. In ‘To Live As An Asian Woman’, she presents a compilation of racist and sexist comments that she has personally encountered. By doing so, she aims to raise awareness about the distressing and continual devaluation of the human dignity of Asian women, a reality that unfolds daily.
make the paragraph shorter: Seulbin Roh’s artistic curiosity began when she faced a dilemma about her vulnerability. The question that it began with was, “Why am I fascinated by dynamic shapes and vivid colours?” The dilemma was closely related to her multicultural background. Moving to different countries as a child, she has always found herself a bit in-between. Missing the advantage of using her surroundings as a way to generate a sense of belonging for herself, she found a great tool to substantiate this quest for self-determination through making art.
* The event will be moderated by Jody Aikman
