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 seminar will reflect on how projects are managed in a context where the studied world (in this case often from the perspective of culture, technology and society) is fragile, under flux. How can project work enable to build international and strong networks in-between international local fields. How do we manage projects in this field? Which models can we learn from?

Keynote speaker:
Prof. Dr. Stijn Oosterlynck is an expert in urban sociology, in relation to urban studies, poverty and social inequality and manages many projects on local, regional and EU level. He will explain the recent successful process of writing, collaborating and starting up a Marie Curie Project.

Case study:
Architecture Workroom Brussels will form a practice based perspective on project acquiring and management.
