How can we create justice for ourselves when traditional avenues are unavailable?
Designed Howlings explores creation as a course of radical action, highlighting artists who use art and design to create secret communications, inside jokes, and hidden modes of resistance.
Named for the 'howlings' of early suffrage activists, these current arts of resistance live in the context of women's suffrage, the industrial revolution, and the relationships between design reform, technical innovation, and the labor movement. Ranging from radical product design and sound art to game art, tattoo design, and social sculpture, exhibited creations savage the status quo.
