Abstract The designer, no more and no less a political animal than his contemporaries, as he bounds his work to a productivist and administrative Weltanschauung (capitalist or not), nurtures the aporia that our ecosystems are now facing, from our biotope to our psyche. I propose to bring out a reformulation of this concern, through a case-study of the work of french graphic designer Hélène Mourrier : what if the activist makes profession of design ?
