The course provides knowledge of design activism, its history, examples of design activism in our society and how to work with graphic design in an activism context. The course handles concepts such as subvertising, culture jamming and craftivism. The student will work independently in projects and also needs to contextualize his / her work in the course, as well as critically reflect on his / her process and results based on design activism. The course thus contains not only practical assignments in graphic design, but also written reports and artist statements.
Distance – study where you are
Perhaps you would like to study in the Swedish mountains, in a big city, or at home close to family? Many of our programmes and courses are offered in distance format.
Studying at a distance can be done in different ways, either entirely without physical gatherings or with only a few gatherings on campus or at one of our learning centres. The common denominator is that a large part of your studies takes place online. You communicate with the teacher and other students with the help of a learning platform with discussion forums, group work, recorded lectures and online meetings.
The benefit of distance studies is the flexibility, something that is valuable if you want to be free to decide when and where you want to study. Some compulsory elements on you course or programme may take place during office hours, even though they are online.
