New edition of the Masters’ Interdisciplinary Workshops with FRAUD, Lolo & Sosaku and Numen/For Use
This February a new edition of the Masters’ Interdisciplinary Workshops has been held, a series of intensive extracurricular activities that complement the academic training of master’s and postgraduate students. The workshops in which students have been able to participate this year are the following:
The first workshop, Revisiting the Laws of Hospitality, by the artist duo known as FRAUD, has explored the tensions created by the growth of tourism in Barcelona. In this context, the workshop has considered how design can create a relationship of mutuality in the urban space, against the exploitation of platforms such as Airbnb. The workshop has sought to develop resilient proposals in cities besieged by electronic tourism.
The artists Audrey Samson and Francisco Gallardo aim to encourage a critical look at environmental activism, postcolonial feminism and critical spatial practice.
The second workshop, What are the limits of creation?, by Lolo and Sosaku has explored the limits of creation, in the search for a new approach in the area of design, architecture and art to redraw disciplines or deconstruct them.
For Lolo and Sosaku electronic music is one of their major inspirations, which they transform into sound installations and sculptural compositions. They explore diverse artistic horizons and search for the interests or forces that guide us in our technological age.
The last workshop, Creating spaces from one dimensional line, by Chritoph Katzler and Nikola Radeljkovic, has explored the possibility of developing light and ephemeral architectural structures from a single dimensional line. The workshop has challenged the perception of stability through a collective project.
This group of designers with their studio Numen/For Use works in the fields of scenography, industrial and spatial design and conceptual art. They configure objects that give rise to works of art.
