Write your statement. Like never before, in every possible moment and situation, social networks are continuously asking us for our opinions. Guixé starts off from this urgency and decline in a personal way, asking us to take our time to think about what we really want to say, to put it down on paper. Social Movement Design Book is a 28-page volume in which the Catalan artist gives us all the space needed to put our ideas down in hard copy, the rules that we want to give ourselves, the quotes that remain in our heads, and the heroes from whom we would like to take example. We can create our ideal bookshelf, give ourselves feedback and send ourselves tweets. Because to give an opinion, you need to have the time to think about it and a place where you can do it, such as this book.
Martí Guixé was born in Barcelona in 1964. He studied Interior Design in Barcelona and then Industrial Design at Scuola Politecnica di Design in Milan. He lives and works “on living matter” between Barcelona and Berlin, devoting himself to inventing “brilliantly simple ideas of curious significance”; a self-designated “ex-designer”, he works for such companies as Alessi, Camper, Chupa-Chups, Desigual, Droog Design, Saporiti e Danese. His work has been exhibited at MoMA, New York, the London Museum of Design, MACBA in Barcelona and the Centre Pompidou in Paris.
