Art, Design & changing Societies
The course provides students with knowledge and competencies in the contemporary discourse of design, applied arts and aesthetics and its interrelation with societal and cultural dynamics. Art and design are conveyed as active agents within these dynamics and the framework and potencies of artistic interventions within changing societies are discussed.  

Art, Design & Emerging Technologies
Furthermore it provides students with knowledge, skills and competencies in the field of design, art and emerging technologies with an emphasis on cross-disciplinary precedents and applications. The discussion focuses on the discourse and contexts of contemporary practice in design, art and architecture, and on a creative and innovative utilisation of state-of-the-art technologies.
