David Reinfurt: on Muriel Cooper

Center affiliate David Reinfurt will talk about Muriel Cooper and the Visible Language Workshop's legacy at MIT. As Design Director of MIT Press, professor in the School of Architecture, and co-founder with Ron MacNeil of the Visible Language Workshop, Muriel Cooper spent a career interrogating the methods and means of graphic design, carving out a series of spaces within MIT where fluid relationships between design, production, teaching, learning, making, reproducing and distributing were explored on a daily basis for twenty years. David co-founded Dexter Sinister a workshop in the basement at 38 Ludlow Street on the Lower East Side in New York City intended to model a "Just-In-Time" economy of print production, working on-demand, considering alternate distribution strategies, and collapsing editing, design, production and distribution into one efficient activity.
