Ezrena Marwan ايزرين مروان 亞茲莉娜  瑪萬 (She/her)

Draws on archival and graphic design theory to investigate the intersection of visuality, history and politics, with a particular focus on issues of identity and power within visual culture.

I am a graphic designer who specialises in visual advocacy in print and identity for rights-based organisations. I do web design and development; with a keen interest in building archives of resistance that are situated at the intersection of visual culture, history and social justice. As an educator, I teach art history and visual culture. I am also one of the founding members of Sejarah Wanita, a project to unearth, document and highlight women’s contributions to the history of Malaysia, and Malaysia Design Archive, a platform that aims to give context to the history of graphic design in Malaysia. I am currently the Co-Lead of Liberatory Archives and Memory at Whose Knowledge?. I am based in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. Click to read more about my work.
