Introducing Our Expert Council for ”Collecting Thoughts”: Brita Lindvall Leitmann


Our working expert council is made up of a number of members who will together guide Collecting Thoughts philosophically, theoretically and practically and engaging artists through Artist-in-Residence. Now we introduce Brita Lindvall Leitmann.

Brita Lindvall Leitmann (b. 1977, Sweden) is a doctoral student in the field of visual communication at Konstfack / HDK-Valand. Lindvall Leitmann graduated from Gerrit Rietveld Academy in Amsterdam in 2007 and has been employed as a senior lecturer in visual communication at Beckmans School of Design. Lindvall Leitmann is an internationally acclaimed graphic designer with 25 years of professional activity. Since 2012, Lindvall Leitmann has run the design studio Bastion, where they investigate how feminist and postcolonial theory can be transformed through visual communication. Most notable is perhaps their redesign of the Swedish magazine Bang (2012–2015), which illuminates and plays with typographic traditions, visual culture, and editorial principles — a project that encircles Lindvall Leitmann’s aesthetically and methodologically ground-breaking practice.
