Discussions on the development of the Campus of the Arts
With contributions by, among others, Matthias Böttger, Jana Eske, Francesco Erspamer, Hans-Peter Huser, Dorothée King, Kirsten M. Langkilde and Jörg Wiesel
This richly illustrated review of the various developments at the Hochschule für Gestaltung und Kunst FHNW embraces contributions from the institutes and their cultural partners outlining the status of research in art, design and the media and covering the 2018 symposium Imagination Friction Transformation.
A significant part of this publication focuses on creative processes, ranging from idea to concept to implementation and to artwork, as generators of social and aesthetic results. How are the resources knowledge, nutrition, energy sources and time constituted in a society? How do they shape communal life? Which strategies are applied? What is the social value of art?
