The Interventionist {2011-Ongoing}

“There are never perfect conditions for an act—every act by definition comes too early. But one has to begin somewhere, with a particular intervention; one just has to bear in mind the further complications that such an act will lead to.” — Slavoj Žižek: The Urgent Necessity of a Syriza Victory in Greece

This is an ongoing project / practice that I started while studying a master in Social Design at the Design Academy of Eindhoven in 2011. It is based on a series of interventions that try to act upon specific issues of society on specific contexts. Some interventions try to critique the status quo, some try to make people think about the state of the world and their behaviour, others try to trigger a conversation / debate about a pressing issue and some simply attempt to propose small alternatives.
