My master’s thesis will be about the place of firearms in contemporary design discourse (or lack thereof). I was inspired to investigate this issue after leaning that the Museum of Modern Art has an unofficial yet unbroken policy forbidding the acquisition of firearms into their design collection.
As a sort of teaser for my master’s thesis, I interviewed a few design experts and created an audio podcast on the subject. You can listen to it here:
