A short film about disproportion between representation of male and female figures in recently published design books. Recorded after "Publishing as a Feminist Practice" - a lecture held by Delphine Bedel during Konstfack Research Week 2019.
According to Bedel's research 60-90% of fine art students are female, but after graduation only 20% of them will be visible in publications or on the market. Intrigued by these numbers, I took a few recently published design books and counted male and female designers mentioned in them. The results are shown in the video KNOW / KNEW / KNOWN as the amount of male designers is represented on the left stack and the amount of female designers on the right one.
