British activist, interdisciplinary artist, and celebrated designer Osman Yousefzada, discusses his first book, The Go-Between, a uniquely observed memoir of his childhood growing up between worlds in a closed migrant community. Illuminating the ties that bind families as well as those that break them apart, he reflects on the trauma of migration, race, and poverty in Britain over the last few decades, as well as his creative ambition and extraordinary achievements, from dressing Beyonce and Lady Gaga to his more recent startling public art installations in London.

Aktivis Inggris, seniman interdisipliner dan desainer terkenal, Osman Yousefzada, akan membahas buku pertamanya The Go-Between, sebuah memoar unik yang diamati dari masa kecilnya yang tumbuh di antara dunia dalam komunitas migran tertutup. Menerangi ikatan yang mengikat keluarga serta yang memisahkan mereka, ia merefleksikan trauma migrasi, ras, dan kemiskinan di Inggris selama beberapa dekade terakhir, serta, ambisi kreatif dan pencapaiannya yang luar biasa, dari mendandani Beyonce dan Lady Gaga, untuk instalasi seni publiknya yang mengejutkan baru-baru ini di London.
