Jan van Eyck Academie – A Platform for Art/Theory/Design

The Jan van Eyck Academie is a site of encounters which had surpassed the sterile confines of academia and the consensual norms of market-oriented work, as it welcomed examinations and radical critiques of the spaces of artistic creation, theoretical inquiry and design, while also questioning the relations and boundaries between these fields. Building upon this experience, while at the same time surpassing its institutional limitations, the intention is to construct a platform for collaboration between theorists, designers and artists, by suspending the borders between their respective disciplines, by affirming the need for collective and experimental work, by engaging in projects which do not shy away from questioning the very possibilities of different domains, whether aesthetic, scientific or political.

Discussion, displays of works and book presentations, organized by the Jan van Eyck Alumni Association, July 17, 7Pm, Motto, Berlin.
