Cursusdoelen
The course aims to train both practical and academic individual and collaborative research skills, and to investigate the role of media, art and performance in (relation to) urban transformations.
Inhoud
This course actively teams up with ongoing research of MCW's research group [urban interfaces]. [urban interfaces] investigates urban transformations and the role of mobile and locational art, media and performance in urban contexts (see https://urbaninterfaces.sites.uu.nl)


Since the beginning of the 20th century, cultural researchers have been concerned with how transport and communication technologies, rapid urbanization and massive social upheavals impact social mobility, civic engagement and modes of belonging. Today, globalization, the spread of information technologies in the urban domain, and the debate on participatory culture and civic engagement spur a further mobilization of urban culture, identity and publics. Both scholars as well as artists and designers enquire into how urban spaces invite collaborative and playful practices of resistance, appropriation and/or engagement. By productively exploring mutual similarities and differences in concerns, methods, concepts, and skills, [urban interfaces] seeks to investigate urban transformations in a methodologically innovative manner.
 
Students will develop their own research in relation to current urban media, art and/or performance projects. In the course the potentials of collaborative research and of crossdisciplinary methodologies will be explored. The course includes a two-day workshop in which students work in teams on an assignment for critical design.

Career orientation:
The course actively engages students in ongoing research projects of the [urban interfaces] research group and current urban media, art and performance projects; students get acquainted with interdisciplinary approaches and crossdisciplinary collaborations with researchers, artists and designers relevant to the professional field of media, art and performance, and current cultural (urban) dynamics. The course also includes a two-day workshop in which students work in teams on an assignment for critical design.

This course is for students in the RMA programmes in the Humanities and the EFMS programme; students from other M.A. programmes should check with the course coordinator before enrolling. The entrance requirements for Exchange Students will be checked by International Office and the Programme coordinator. You do not have to contact the Programme coordinator by yourself.
