Description

In the academic year 2019/20 we would like to continue exploring questions related to the future of work and what ‘a good life’ could mean through our ‘Artscience practises’ seminar. What could be an ecological way of working together, also with fish, glaciers, objects, models, or stories? How are we shaping cross-species solidarities and how are they forming us? Through lectures, workshops and excursions we want to investigate different types of relationships between entities and and experiment with assembling strategies through the winter and summer semesters.

This is a joint course with Artscience practisesS01496 with Valerie Deifel so in total it is 2SH and 4ECTs.
