Save the date! MAKING MATTERS Symposium 2020: Collective Material Practices in Critical Times

Join us at the second edition of the Making Matters symposium, which will take place on Friday 20 and Saturday 21 November 2020 at Het Nieuwe Instituut in Rotterdam and online.

Collective material practices are now emerging that transgress the classical opposition between theory and practice, or thinking and making. These practices actively engage with our catastrophic times and generate collaborations that connect social, technological and cultural concerns. They show a potential to develop a comprehensive approach to art, science and technology, driven by the necessity to fundamentally reimagine the relationship of humans to the world.
Confirmed participants:
Aliens in Green, Display Distribute, a.pass, Feral Atlas Group, Jatiwangi Art Factory, The Otolith Group, Olu Taiwo, Kate Rich, Garnet Hertz, Jeanne van Heeswijk, Clara Lobregat Balaguer, the work group Material Practices (Leiden University, Willem de Kooning Academy, Het Nieuwe Instituut, Waag Society, West Den Haag and associated researchers)
