Manuela Porceddu (1977) is a multidisciplinary graphic designer/artist based in Dordrecht, the Netherlands. Educated at Willem de Kooning Academy Rotterdam (2003). Until 2009 she worked in collaboration with graphic designer/musician Derk Reneman (Studio Derk Reneman & Manuela Porceddu) based in Rotterdam.

 

Manuela is interested in visual identity, visual activism, visual politics and the influence of technological innovation on current society, art and media. Through research she engages in different work processes.

 

‘There have never been so many images in circulation or available for so many people. The demand and production of images will only continue to increase. Therefor I have a continuous research practice where I try to unravel and analyse how the triangel of image, technological innovation, and current society are related to each other.’

 

In collaboration with the Dordrechts Museum she organises different platforms for local artists to discuss and review each others work and work process.
