In the summer semester 2023, the Studium Generale continues with its weekly JUXTAPOSTIONS series curated and moderated by visiting professor Lukas Feireiss. For its fourth iteration it is again both, an inspirational lecture series on the topic of transdisciplinary contemporary cultural production, as well as a practical and applied seminar in which students from various academic backgrounds are invited to work with one another in an environment of constructive criticism and creative collaboration.
Driven by an understanding that none of the issues, we are facing globally right now, can be tackled by a single profession, nor without the kind of collaboration enabled by technology, JUXTAPOSITIONS promotes a critical discourse across binaries, boundaries, borders, disciplines, norms, forms and protocols. It celebrates the power of cross-pollination, creative entanglement and non-binary collaboration and embraces the beautiful juxtapositions that make up our lives.
Requirements for the ungraded Studium Generale credits: regular participation, individual reflections for each of the lectures and group work.
