This session is part of the PhD seminar series “Re-worlding” art and design research.
MAD-Research (PXL-MAD and UHasselt) and ArcK (UHasselt)
This first seminar will dive into the necessity to rethink how we position our Faculty’s artistic and design research in today’s changing world. We rethink our own position, but also the platforms via which we do art and design research today, our research groups, our faculty research days, our doctoral program. Is our positioning and the positioning of our platforms able to navigate in a landscape in which culture is in a very fragile position and polarisation is driving public debates: on climate, care, migration etc. What input do we need as researchers to navigate this landscape more consciously?
