Thomas Castro will give a lecture titled "Design + Education in the Netherlands."

Castro is a founding member of the Dutch graphic design collective LUST whose groundbreaking work sits at the intersection of graphic design, digital media, information technology, and architecture. LUST’s work spanned 20 years — from 1996 until 2017, when they closed their doors upon death of one of their partners. LUST was an important precursor in the field of research in design, through use of digital tools, information + data visualizations, and networked systems. In 2017, LUST was awarded the Piet Zwart Award, the highest design award given by the BNO, the Dutch association of design professionals.

In 2018, Castro founded ZeroDotZero as a research lab for design, positioning itself in the divide between design education and critical practice.

As an educator, Castro has taught Graphic Design and Typography at the ArtEZ University of the Arts Arnhem since 2002. He became the Head of the Graphic Design Department in 2012. His work has been presented at diverse international podia, including the MOMA, the Cooper Hewitt Smithsonian Museum, the Walker Art Center in Minneapolis, the Beijing and Shanghai Biennales, the Stedelijk Museum in Amsterdam, and the Design Museum Breda.
