GEM - seminars for the staff

GEM stands for "Gränsöverskridande EftermiddagsMöte" (translates to border-crossing afternoon meetings). During the semester Vice-Chancellor Björn Brorström invites the staff at the university to seminars and meetings on different themes.

The seminars are mostly held in Swedish. A seminar usually starts with a lecture on a specific subject and is followed by an open discussion.

Program autumn 2016:

8 september: Former matter: principles issues in art and design

Time: 13.00-16.00
Venue: M401
This GEM is held in English. 

Art and design, research as well as education, is often understood and conducted as applied endeavours. In this note however, I would instead like to point at the more foundational issues of art and design beyond typically phenomenological passions.

This includes opening up ontological, methodological and epistemological issues in order to present a more comprehensive research agenda in art and design, and as a result thereof, hopefully, indicate more diverse possibilities for the art and design of our future.
