In this text I condensed my reflections on a few years of involvement in (graphic) #design and design education. https://networkcultures.org/entreprecariat/no-problem-design/
@entreprecariat Though the politics seem identity-driven from your piece - based on individualism and biography, which is very familiar. I think neoliberalism is perhaps a sort of invisible OS for post-modernism that swept art + academia as they both rose in the 70s-90s. Along with individualist, "arty" design also become very market-compatible. The honeymoon ended with the rise of web 2.0 in the 2000s. The world got reduced to a screen and visual expression got small + atomized.
@entreprecariat So not sure if it’s what you’re talking about or totally different, but this recent CalArts exhibit shows both of these strains in a mutant nutshell: https://www.redcat.org/exhibition/inside-out-upside-down-posters-calarts-1970-2019
