Although creatives are often hired by news media to visually support journalistic content, a new generation of engaged artists and designers experiments with autonomous media forms that are innovative in journalism and enrich the artistic sector.

They analyse urgent social themes in a journalistic way and present their results in projects that are rich and layered in content, method and form. This interdisciplinary approach to design, art and journalism we compile under the title Artistic Journalism.

The programme Designalism is a collaboration between ACED and Stijn Postema (PhD researcher at Media Studies, University of Amsterdam) and aims to investigate and identify this new field.

As part of this initiative, on October 24 a public podcast programme will be organised in which journalist and presentor IJsbrand van Veelen enters into a conversation with artists, designers and journalists whose work can be counted as Designalism. The program consists of 6 conversations that will be published as podcasts.

12:00 — 13:00 Koert van Mensvoort (Next Nature Network)
13:00 — 14:00 Annet Henneman (Teatro di Nascosto)
14:00 — 15:00 Robert Glas
15:00 — 16:00 Irene Stracuzzi
16:00 — 17:00 Coralie Vogelaar

Designalism has been honoured with a grant from the Creative Industries Fund NL.
