Dr Mathilda Tham spoke on gender and design at Whitechapel Gallery

Gender Identity and Design at Whitechapel Gallery

What gender have designed objects, design disciplines or even design itself? How can we open up for a design and a world that is less gender polarised? These were questions Dr Mathilda Tham, co-convenor of MA Design Futures and Metadesign and PhD supervisor, explored in her talk during an event chaired by acclaimed design critic Alice Rawsthorne, author of Hello World. Gabriel Ann Maher, of Eindhoven Academy, shared her insights and work in the remit of gender identity and design and transgender.
