Imagine a square watermelon. Or a bonsai tree. Or a pear, growing inside of a bottle. The plant has very little understanding of what is the structure which shapes it, but still manages to continue growing and to learn about its surroundings.

Karina Zavidova is currently growing her own research and exploring the 'terms and conditions' of a creative practice owned by a non-EU citizen in the Netherlands. Sitting in the iconic Dutch Design establishment she will share her research and chat with visitors about immigration, identity and the extraction and evaluation of value a non-EU ‘creative’ brings to Dutch society.

#SELFDESIGN is the first PUBcast Series commissioned by DROOG DESIGN.
For 12 weeks, an installation - part scenery, part recording studio and part audio display - will become the production and distribution platform for six podcasts. Creating a sound studio that considers the presence of the body, this production scenario developed by Fabulous Future serves as a decorated shed to research self design notions, where listening is also massaging, recording is relaxing, sharing is caring, watching is commenting, joining is embracing and editing is bonding.

Is self design connected to the neoliberal idea of self-care, entrepreneurship or to an actual reframing and liberation of design as a discipline?

PUBCast is a PUB initiated podcast series challenging the possibilities of audio distribution and publishing as a global communication tool through space and time.

PUB is a trans-department platform initiated by students of the Sandberg Instituut. PUB is a hub to identify interdisciplinary connections and accelerate collaborations amongst students and alumni.
