Floating Peripheries | Mediating the Sense of Place

'Floating Peripheries - Mediating the Sense of Place' is an artistic research project (consortium) funded by the Academy of Finland (2017–2021). In this project various artists and researchers aim at enlarging the understanding of ‘peripheries’ into areas that are difficult to verbalize by "producing new art-based strategies for unraveling the spatial and conceptual hierarchies and biased assumptions of what and where the 'periphery' is in relation to the 'center'".

The consortium is a collaboration between two leading institutions: Aalto University of the Arts, Design and Architecture and the University of Lapland, Faculty of Art and Design. Researchers are: Liisa Ikonen, Maiju Loukola, Elina Lifländer, Harri Laakso, Mari Mäkiranta, Eija Timonen and Jonna Tolonen. International cooperation partners are Dr. Dorita Hannah (Aalto ARTS, University of Tasmania, University of Auckland) and Gabi Schillig (Berlin University of the Arts).

Spaces of Communication | Book

„Spaces of Communication“ ist eine Reaktion auf die Frage nach möglichen Gestaltungsformen räumlicher Kommunikation und darauf, wie diese erkundet werden können. Die in diesem Buch dokumentierte Auswahl studentischer Arbeiten am Lehr- und Forschungsgebiet „Gestaltungslehre – Räumlich-Plastische Gestaltung“ an der Peter Behrens School of Arts der Hochschule Düsseldorf steht für eine experimentelle und prozesshafte Auseinandersetzung mit dem Medium Raum. Die in Ausschnitten gezeigten Arbeiten aus den Jahren 2012 bis 2018 geben in ihrer Vielfalt einen Einblick in die Aktivitäten in der Lehre.

Un/Certain Futures
Rollen des Designs in gesellschaftlichen Transformationsprozessen'

"Welche Rolle spielt Design in gesellschaftlichen Transformationsprozessen? Können Zukünfte und soziale Wirklichkeiten nachhaltig gestaltet werden – oder handelt es sich bei den Wirkungen gestalterischer Eingriffe um mehr oder weniger zufällige Reaktionen eigensinnig evolvierender sozialer Systeme auf gut gemeinte Interventionen? Wie wäre das »Bessere« zu definieren, besonders im Kontext von Nachhaltigkeit und der Debatte um eine notwendige »Große Transformation«? Im Aufspannen eines komplexen Netzes von Beiträgen aus Theorie und Praxis wird Design in diesem Band außerhalb disziplinärer Engmaschigkeit gedacht und nimmt soziale, ökologische, politische und ökonomische Herausforderungen ernst."

Stiftung Bauhaus Dessau | Gropius House || Contemporary

'Since 2016 the Bauhaus Residency Programme has invited international artists to conduct research in the Masters’ Houses while living and working for some months in the Schlemmer House or the Muche House. During this period they find their own ways to access and address the Bauhaus.

These are added to the exhibition successively, engaging with the space and the other works already on show. These include works by Anael Berkovitz (ISR/USA), Andrea Canepa (PER/GER), Rudy Decelière (FRA/CHE), Markus Hoffmann (GER), Amor Muñoz (MEX), Wagehe Raufi (GER), Gabi Schillig (GER), Sebastian Stumpf (GER) and Marit Wolters (GER/AUT).'
