At least since the Porto Protocol: https://www.portoprotocol.com/circular-economy-as-a-way-of-increasing-efficiency-in-organizations/ in relation to relationship and environment is in demand. How can you find and implement projects you are burning for in this field? What does relationship mean here in the sense of a Karen Barad? How can this be done in an interdisciplinary team? How can one also earn a living doing this?

The aim of this course is to combine interdisciplinary skills in a sustainable context. This semester, for the first time, this will be done together with students from the New Design University from St. Pölten and the University of Applied Arts Vienna. By means of Applied Design Thinking, students will jointly develop sustainable project ideas in the sense of the circular economy and subsequently design them up to a possible implementation. Selected existing projects are critically analyzed and design management is taught.

In the process, student artist teachers learn about interdisciplinary connections to subject areas such as geography and economics. The goal is to be able to apply interdisciplinary knowledge to these subject areas in order to convey them to students.

In turn, the students of the New Design University will have the opportunity to cooperate in an interdisciplinary way with students of the artistic teaching program in the field of art and design as well as the workshops. The joint work is recorded in a book. This is done in cooperation with the paper workshop of the Angewandte.
