Research project tested at @ exposition in A Tale of a Tub

Caradt researcher Rob Leijdekkers, as member of a collective with Hedwig Houben and Brenda Tempelaar, uses and tests the model that he developed for his project Dilemmas for Artists and Designers during the exposition in A Tale of a Tubarrow between 14 November 2020 and 24 January 2021.

In collaboration with A Tale of a Tub and all invited artists Rob is looking for ways to break open the closed bastions of the art world and put their social responsibility at risk. The practice of Brenda Tempelaar should be interpreted as an invitation. The host institution A Tale of a Tub and the public are also invited to affiliate and become stakeholders in this practice.

You can find more information and tickets for the exposition on the website of A Tale of a Tubarrow.

Research Group: Cultural and Creative Industries

The research group Cultural and Creative Industries investigates the role of artists and designers as creative innovators and drivers of social and economic change.

What economic models are required by artists and designers to create a meaningful practice within the aesthetic, social, and economic intentions of the cultural and creative industries? What skills sets are required for those artists and designers who don’t just want to follow movements, but actually shape novel social and economic models of the future?
