"The Politics of Design explores the cultural and political context of the typography, colours, photography, symbols, and information graphics that we use every day...This book examines cultural contexts and stereotypes with visual examples from around the world. It demonstrates that communication tools are never neutral, and encourages its users to rethink global cultural understanding. Additional works by contemporary artists and designers show that political awareness does no limit creativity, but opens up new explorations for a critical visual culture"--Back cover.
