Deem is a biannual print journal and online platform focused on design as social practice.
For Issue Two, "Pedagogy for a New World," we are examining the role of design in the ways we produce and share knowledge.
Issue Two is led by a conversation between artist, architect, and community organizer Lauren Halsey and Deem editors Alice Grandoit-Šutka and Isabel Flower. The story investigates architecture and the power of place, the importance of community autonomy, and how Halsey’s goals as an artist have manifested in the Summaeverythang community center in South Central, Los Angeles.
The contributors to our first issue include:
Alberta Wright‚ Alexis Aceves Garcia, Alice Grandoit-Šutka, Annelys de Vet, Antonia Estela Pérez Rojas, Ari Melenciano, Dr. Ha Vinh Tho, Eda Levenson, Eilen Itzel Mena, Elizabeth (Dori) Tunstall, Felema Yemaneberhan, Geneva White, Giovanna Fischer, Isabel Flower, Jacqui Whang, Jessica Lynne, Joseph Henry, Justin Garrett Moore, Kamra Sadia Hakim, Lauren Halsey, Marcel Rosa-Salas, Mona Chalabi, Nora N. Khan, Pooja Agrawal, Prem Krishnamurthy, Ramon Tejada, Salome Asega, Sara Smith, and WAI Architecture Think Tank
