We present the Social Insurgents: the people whose work is quietly disengaging with the status quo

How can one be insurgent when overt protest is stifled or ignored? How does one rebel against a culture dominated by a totalising market logic without looking quaint and unfashionable?

We present the Social Insurgents: the people whose work is quietly disengaging with large systems of media, commerce and government. This exhibition draws together work with different social agendas that illustrate how the political landscape for design is shifting. One media mogul shouldn't control our news, one internet company shouldn’t supply all our maps, there can't be just one version of the Iraq war.

Off the well-established design trail, the exhibition is in Deptford Town Hall - the baroque site of the former council and location of a number of high profile protests in the recent past.
