Art and design have an important role to play in the development of society. Caradt’s research aims to empower artists and designers to fulfil this role by generating theories, tools and methods to critically challenge the ‘natural order’ of things. 

 

In order to do this, Caradt conducts practice-led research that integrates science, politics and technology into the field of art and design. The complexity of contemporary society requires such an integrative approach. Our research programme is developed in close collaboration with the educational departments of Avans University of Applied Sciences as well as external partners.
