The Superstudio is organized as a working collective of students, faculty, and collaborators engaged in thought and action to address the complexity and interdependence of systems related to those forces revealed as most critical in our current moment. Organized in thematic areas of inquiry—expanded notions of health and care, labor and local economies, parallel education and organizing for action, ecological and non-human systems, and the carceral—these will be approached not as discrete concerns, but as basecamps from which to build relationships and develop design-based responses. Students will have access to and can engage with lines of inquiry and exploration via design within any of these thematic areas, in collaboration with fellow students, studio faculty, and an array of collaborators.
