We lope along a logical “Laufbahn” in our second public program, a conversation between London-based writer and curator Emily King and P. Krishnamurth. In 2017, King, Krishnamurth, and Joasia Krysia launched Design & Empire [working title] with the Liverpool Biennial and Liverpool John Moores University. This exploratory three-day event began by locating historical and contemporary links between design and structures of power. Looking for longer-lasting lessons from Liverpool, King & Krishnamurth will collect contributions from the conference at K, to consider the project’s potential legacy and elongated life.
