Graphic Negotiations #3 – Erik Hartin & Moa Pårup

Join us online on Wednesday 18 May at 1pm for the third in our Graphic Negotiations series of events exploring designing artists’ books (RSVP).

This third event in the series features Erik Hartin and Moa Pårup, who we have a long history of collaboration with, both as a duo and separately. As designers, they have worked on projects with Sophie Collins, Francis McKee and Kit Poulson, as well as the Book Works website. As part of the collective Everyone Agrees (with Clodagh Kinsella), Erik has instigated, co-edited and designed After The Night and The Night (Michèle Bernstein) as part of the Common Objectives series.

Erik and Moa have a background as designers, art directors and writers in the arts, fashion and cultural sectors. Since 2019, they have pivoted their practice to focus on planet-centric design, which means a much stricter focus in terms of only taking on work that has the potential to actively change the world for the better. As part of their practice, they co-coordinate the Extinction Rebellion art group and are in the process of launching Not Here To Be Liked, a creative consultancy studio along with artist and activist Liam Geary Baulch.

Erik and Moa will be talking about design practice in the face of a climate and ecological emergency. What’s at stake, and how designers and artists can help affect culture for the better. And of course, books! 

Graphic Negotiations is a series of lunchtime talks with designers, many of whom we’ve worked with in the past. The format and topic will vary, but all events will be online only, free to attend and will be between 1-1.45 pm on a weekday. The next two events are:

Wednesday 18th May – Erik Hartin and Moa Pårup (RSVP)
Wednesday 15th June – Rose Nordin and Rosa-Johan Uddoh

Sign up for the first event here. And sign up to the Book Works newsletter for details of future events.
