Learning outcomes

After successful completion of the course, students are able to understand contemporary art and architecture production as a means and expression of cultural, political and economic changes and to engage themselves in new approaches of experimental, critical spatial practice. Due to its orientation toward a combination of scholarly and artistic research, the Visual Culture module offers students a range of transdisciplinary competences - critical thinking, cooperation, experimental approaches, research-oriented project work, interpretation and adaptation skills – for independently engaging with the production/reception of art and architecture.

Subject of course

Across design, technology, environment and politics

Ippolito Pestellini Laparelli

A simple tap on a screen conceals a chain of sequenced operations, procedures, and invisible frictions: a complex system where physical, biological, mineral, chemical, and synthetic regimes are entangled in a short time-frame and across scales, from the microscopic to the planetary and beyond. What are the spatial forms of this emerging data-scape ?


Alternative Spatial Patterns 

Letizia Chiappini

How does the architecture of technology interweave with the physical built environment that we are living in?  During our seminar, we will guide students through the provocative concept of ‘sluttiness’ in the city. The aim is to translate from theory to practice, notions such as ‘Platform Urbanism’ and ‘the Glitch’. By observing our everyday life choices and consumerism patterns in relation to the urban space, the main outcome is to collectively reflect upon techno-spatialised practices after the advent of digital platforms. Through the experimental ‘slut walk’, we invite you to observe and take inspiration from your everyday life environment.slutty Together with students, our intervention is meant to co-create visual, graphical and/or text materials that will enrich their ’research file’ to reflect upon these topics.
