The Plain Notebook Project | Gallery at the Cliff Netanya | Tel Aviv

The Plain Notebook Project is an ongoing international project, curated by Dr. Guy Morag Tzepelewitz. Artists from 45 different countries contributed to this project, sharing multidimensional works, spatial installations, video works and sculptures, related to the object of the brown Israeli notebook. It is associated as a political object that is radically reconstructed when removed from its ideological context through artistic transformations. The project proposes a model for initiating future collective and international values and dialogs. The 2nd edition of the project's group exhibition will take place in the Gallery at the Cliff in Netanya / Tel Aviv, Israel.

Floating Peripheries | Mediating the Sense of Place | Aalto University Helsinki

'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).

The 'Urban Peripheries' workshop will take place at Aalto University in Helsinki from February 10 to 19, 2019 and will be exploring spatial interventions as artistic alternatives for urban transformation. The second workshop will take place at the Berlin University of the Arts in December 2019.

Imaginary Spaces | designtransfer | vorspiel transmediale

‘Imaginary Spaces – Spaces of Communication’ examines how human-space relationships can be reinterpreted in the age of advancing digitization in order to produce future hybrid forms of spatial communication design.

As part of the design and exhibition project, which is being developed and produced in collaboration with designtransfer, the exhibition will explore these questions using experimental spatial and artistic means – imaginative spatial constructions, physical objects and communication apparatus, furniture objects, spatial installations, transmedia environments, situations, or new multisensory work-viewer relationships that blur the boundaries between the real and the unreal, the virtual and the physical. The result is a series of multidimensionally extended perspectives on forms of spatial communication that enable an expansion of the sensory dimension of experience.

A project of the Class of Spatial Design and Exhibition Design in collaboration with designtransfer / Vorspiel transmediale.

Opening: Tuesday, 29 January 2019, 19:00
Talk by Banz & Bowinkel – ‘The Virtual Void as Artistic Space’

Exhibition: 30 January – 05 February 2019

Floating Peripheries Conference 2019 | Sites and Situations | University of Lapland

"The conference focuses on the notion of periphery/peripheries in relation to the varied methods, materials, concepts, questions and ideas accurate in the fields of artistic research and visual studies. The conference will include presentations, artistic interventions, discussions and installations that speculate about the multitude of peripheral sites and situations as a multi-layered and complex phenomenon – as conceptual, spatial and site-responsive domains, aesthetically and spatially experienced and shaped by associations, representations and practices through different mediums in arts and epistemologies."

The conference is part of a research consortium Floating Peripheries – mediating the sense of place between University of Lapland, Faculty of Art and Design and Aalto University School of Arts, Design and Architecture. The project is funded by the Academy of Finland during 2017–2021.

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."
