“The power of Identity”—Mio and Mujgan speaking at the Weltformat Festival, Luzern!

Futuress was invited to speak at the 2021 Weltformat Graphic Design Festival in Luzern! Under the panel theme “The Power of Identity,” Futuress, alongside Clara Balaguer and Charlotte Rhode, gave insights into how the private, the personal, and the professional intertwine in their practice. We were excited to open up the stage for personal experiences from the community, emphasizing the power of sharing space: Mujgan Abdulzade and Mio Kojima represented the community in presence, giving insight into how Futuress transformed research into an activist practice and created space for sharing vulnerabilities. Sherine Salla, Heba Daghistani and Noemi Parisi took part in the form of video contributions, talking about embracing subjectivity, falling in love with design again, and finding a community to change the canon together. The presentation can be rewatched on our Instagram.
