MA Design: Explorations & Translations
Studio Culture: Material and Media Experiments
We are explorers and translators of experiences: we sense the world, question borders and challenge production and value systems. We engage with the imagination and participate in contemporary debates regarding the environment, new ecologies, and human production processes through a balance of applied and speculative work.
In a conflicted climate, the MA Design Studio is a place for collective debate, an area filled with material and media experiments visited by international guests and industry specialists engaged in contemporary practices.
If you are interested in researching contemporary zeitgeist topics, if you believe experiencing and sensing are ways of learning; if you can collect and synthetize different forms of knowledge, and if you want to explore ways of developing your own authorship as a designer through the use of material and media, we will be happy to welcome you at IAA.
