Internationally renowned designer Jasleen Kaur is fascinated in how social histories become embedded in materials and objects. Jasleen joins Ruth Ewan in conversation. Ruth’s work explores histories of radical and utopian thought, bringing insight into how we might live today.

Jasleen Kaur is fascinated by the malleability of culture and how social histories become embedded in materials and objects. Her refashioned objects are based on instinct and resourcefulness, reflecting a hybridity of national custom and reconsidering the realities of materiality, usage and everyday routine. Ruth Ewan’s work explores histories of radical and utopian thought, bringing to light specific ideas in order to question how we might live today.
