Looking from within
In this two part lecture series we explore the philosophy of Saki the artist Mafundikwa: looking from within. We begin the series online with an introduction to Mam’Gobozi Design Factory and reference some of their favourite artists and where they draw inspiration from.
Design as a field of creative expression is where much of the studios work stems from and they use typography, graphic design, illustration and more as a decolonial practice of defining the design field for themselves. This is a way for the design duo to see the link between the past and present in order to live in the future. – the future where the knowledge of their people lives on.
Nontokozo Tshabalala was born in South Africa and is currently a student at HDK in Gothenburg. She is a multidisciplinary artist and her work includes graphic design and poetry. Nontokozo is one of the founders of Mam’Gobozi Design Factory.
