Over the past 30 years she has written a substantial number of books on graphic design and politics. The conversation is recorded while walking through the city of Breda for Graphic Matters.

In partnership with Graphic Matters, we bring a special serie of interviews with researchers, designers, and thinkers who presented their work during the graphic design festival. Graphic Matters, founded in 2008, shows every two year how designers shape and influence our perspective on current issues that matter. With the slogan Visual stories you care about, Graphic Matters presented work from over 200 international designers. Through the exhibitions, talk shows and workshops Graphic Matters challenged the visiter to create their own image.

In this episode of the Neon Moiré Show, the fourth in this serie, Thomas Dahm talks with Liz McQuiston is a graphic designer, educator, and writer. While walking through the city of Breda on our way to the train station we talked about why Liz writes about the relationship between graphic design and politics, the Silence equals Death project and the advantages of silkscreen printing in an age of technology.

I firmly believe that designers learn through their eyes, through visuals, and they actually make connections more quickly that way, that has always fascinated me.
— Liz McQuiston
