Solidarity by Design: OSPAAAL
May 24, 14:00
This lecture considers political solidarity and internationalism through print and design culture. Armed by Design was an exhibition, print portfolio, and is a forthcoming book centering the Organization of Solidarity of the Peoples of Asia, Africa, and Latin America (OSPAAAL). OSPAAAL was a Cuban design and publishing organization that emerged after the 1966 Tricontinental Conference. The talk will explore questions about design language, publishing and distribution solidarity, and contemporary internationalism. Lani Hanna is a collective member at Interference Archive, has been involved in organizing Armed by Design since its conception, has written about OSPAAAL for other publications and is one of the editors of the forthcoming book.
