Extra-curricular is a reader of texts on and around the topic of self-organized learning, curriculum, experiments, and alternatives in graphic design education. Occurring both within and separate from existing institutions, these other forms of learning and organization question how such learning takes place, for whom, and the ideologies inherent in existing models, among many other things. An (admittedly) incomplete inventory inspired by the widespread activity and educational turn (or shift) in the field, this book aims to serve as a point of departure for further discussion and experimentation.
Jacob Lindgren is a graphic designer, writer, and researcher based in Chicago. He is a partner of the studio Platform and publishes his own and other's work via the imprint Platform Editions. He organizes and participates in the self-organized learning group Open-End-Ed.”
