About this video


Join Neela as she unwraps the generation and reproduction of racism in packaging and label design. Neela's analysis of graphic-designed, consumer packaged goods shows themes of scientific and cultural racism, (self) orientalism and cultural appropriation, among others. Adopting an anti-racist framework, this session offers transversal cosmopolitanism (transversalism) as a modality for decolonial praxis within graphic design.
