Monica Sand, artist and researcher at the Swedish Centre of Architecture and Design will guide us through different artistic interventions in the city.
The ambience of a city – movement, sound, rhythm - is defined by collective, cultural and social means, and both citizens and visitors are immersed in complex situations as actors, producers and observers.
In this research project several artists, dancers, musicians, students, researchers and planners explore different urban situations by composing and recomposing its rhythms and resonances in playful events. New situations evolve within the existing ones, so that qualities, limits, conflicts and new meanings evolve that can serve both as descriptions of daily social life and practical tools for research.
With its spatial, temporal, corporeal knowledge gained through daily life and developed and experimented with through art practice, artistic research has recently become part of the academia. How and with what tools can this kind of research con¬tribute to practical/academic knowledge production?

All seminars in the series.
