Arts & Interaction
In the program Arts & Interaction you debate the nature, dynamics and value of our network society and you are challenged to design your own point of view. The program involves a broad exploration of the term ‘interaction’. You can research technological and digital forms of interaction as well as physical and analogue forms. This enables you to explore the fields of media and technical art and generative design, as well as the disciplines of performance art and participatory art. You can script and program, talk or explore physical interaction.
During the program Arts & Interaction you will learn how you as an artist can utilize interaction in your work and work processes. Based on theory and practice, you will explore why interaction is relevant in contemporary fine arts and design. During the theory lessons, you will look at the various manifestations of interaction in politics, art, design, the economy and a range of other areas. Alongside this, you will research the new forms of interaction being developed by contemporary artists and designers, as well as the art-historic precursors of this new trend. You will work intensively with students from other degree programs and with companies, organizations or government institutions. You will discover which roles suit you, how to use interaction as part of your art or design work and how to give a professional pitch.
