Art, design and architecture as aesthetic practice of a visual and material culture are always in exchange with other social forms of cultural practice. From the so-called high culture of visual art to the utility culture of advertising, from significant architectures to concepts of space, from design objects to everyday objects of use, and from photography and film to the digitalized image, these are always phenomena of socially negotiated processes. In the courses we therefore deal with the systematic discussion and analysis of design and artistic phenomena and with the respective historical and social conditions and discourses in which they are embedded.
