Group leaders: Anastasia Karandinou and Renee Tobe
Social and environmental resilience are key issues driving the research projects of this group. This research group looks into how political and social phenomena are depicted in visual arts and into how design responds to – and also leads – social, cultural, political change. Creative and transformative analysis and mapping of spaces and phenomena is key to our processes. Mapping and critically transcribing observations and information from one medium to another allows our analyses to be transformative and productive. Architecture, interior and spatial design, photography and visual arts address how we live, and apart from producing spaces and artefacts, they also challenge and propose new paradigms; they constitute a device to think and debate with.
