Corpo-real discourse workshop - The Rodina / design research: Tereza Ruller

Tereza Ruller (she/her) identifies as a mother, a communication designer, a researcher, and an educator. In her practice—The Rodina—Ruller investigates the performative and critical approach toward graphic design. Her transdisciplinary practice emphasizes the power of situation, playfulness, active spectatorship, and relations between human and nonhuman actors. Ruller’s work is deeply collaborative and consists of participatory events, spatial installations, virtual environments, and visual identities. Addressing critical issues of our time—such as ecological, social, and political crises—she seeks to develop collective shifts in perspective.
