Jonathan Barnbrook, Designer aus London, hat im Zuge der olympischen Spiele eine Protest-Website auf die Beine gestellt, die Künstler dazu einlädt, eigene Statements zu gestalten und hochzuladen. Creative Review hat ein Interview.
CR: Can you explain the idea behind the site?
JB: To get artists, designers whoever to contribute some visual work. I don’t know if that sounds a bit limp. This sort of thing [is often met with] “what’s the point of doing a bit of ‘design’?” but this site is not just for designers to look at each other’s work but to be a resource for people who want to express their discontent with the issue. I don’t really want people to get hung up on the idea that this can change anything in isolation, it can’t. These works are just one tool of many which people will use to keep Tibet as a central issue in mainstream politics, as that is the only way things will change.
