Art, Arquitecture and New Materialities13 Jul 2016, por Investigación y proyectos en
I am part of the work team of the R&D project «Art, Arquitecture and new materialities» which PI is Dr. Lourdes Cirlot.
This project aims to study and develop new methodologies to embrace the role given to the materials along the Art and Architecture histories from a new materialistic frame of thought. How can we generate tools to study artistic practices empirically? Through which tactics can we ensemble and narrate alternative temporalities in Art History? In which ways the concept of “materialism” is articulate- if it is so- in contemporary artistic production and exhibitions labs and centers?
This project emphasizes that artistic practices are more than just cultural products, but active agents in the construction, transformation and maintenance of the social.
“Art, Arquitecture and New Materilities” is carrying on by the research groups: Mediaccions (Universitat Oberta de Catalunya), Art, Arquitectura i Societat Digital (AASD, Universitat de Barcelona) and Arquitectures Genètiques (ESARQ –Universitat International de Catalunya)
