Article:

This panel forms part of a series of three panels that coalesce around the theme of 'Modernisms' Locations', and specifically considers the International Council of Societies of Industrial Design (ICSID), the relationship between national and transnational design cultures, and the evolution of models and codes of professional practice during the mid-twentieth century. Dr. Leah Armstrong’s paper locates the British Society of Industrial Artists in an international context and shows how the professionalization of design in Britain was shaped through a complex negotiation between the national and the transnational. Tania Messell’s paper examines the tensions that surrounded ICSID’s establishment, and reveals how cultural internationalism was inextricably linked with Cold War politics and national representation. Finally, Dr. Harriet Atkinson’s paper explores Black’s role in internationalizing British design cultures by examining the incentives that drove his contribution to ICSID and other design organisations, and its impact on these transnational sites.
