Agents in the Anthropocene: Trans/disciplinary Practices in Art and Design Education Today
Symposium organized by the Piet Zwart Institute / Willem de Kooning Academy
January 28 & 29, 2017
Rotterdam University, the Netherlands
The Anthropocene is both a widely acknowledged and fiercely debated term for a new geological era caused by humankind’s destructive influence on the planet. A growing number of exhibitions and publications are studying the intersection of the so-called Anthropocene with artistic and cultural practices.
The symposium intends to explore the role of the art and design fields as active agents contributing to the multi-disciplinary discourse on the Anthropocene. Special focus will be given to the notion of trans-disciplinary research—because of its cross-pollination of art, design, media, cultural disciplines and science—arising as part of the (critical) discussion about the Anthropocene.
