Super Models

Super Models is a new book edited by Kate DeWitt, Harry Gassel and Jen Lee.

Super Models is a case study, a trend report, a coded map, or series of casual conversations that seeks to plumb the foundational structure of any art or design practice: its business model. This project started with a desire to understand the structure of a studio as a design problem in and of itself and to learn how the choices made in building that structure define the work a studio produces. The germ of the idea was an interest in critical design practice. How do designers make work outside of the normal scope of the commercial? How do they support their studios? Is the work they are known for their bread and butter, and if not, what is? What, ultimately, is the flow of capital that drives these practices as businesses? What is the relationship between criticism and, to paraphrase Aristotle, keeping the lights on?
