Applications for 2017 UNIDEE-University of Ideas

UNIDEE - University of Ideas’ format proposes an educational model based on ‘other’ ways of gaining experience in the meeting of critical theory, activism and artistic practice, not through subordinate relationships but rather through levels of interaction, exchanges and reciprocal interference. In 2017 the course will use an interdisciplinary approach to examine three macro-themes. They will be Revolution, Desire and Mediation, which are central to contemporary social-political debates as well as in the practices of many actors (artists, curators, public and private institutions, organisations, etc.) operating in the public sector.

Every year UNIDEE is based on laboratory or seminar modules that are held each week at Cittadellarte, moderated by a mentor with the support of a guest. The groups of participants, who are always different and arrive from all over the world, interact intensely as they discuss and examine relationships between art and the public sphere in depth, starting from different practices and going through connections with various disciplines (from visual art to the theory of economical politics, music, etc.).

The modules and deadlines for 2017 are as follows:
