Launch web journal: Making & Breaking issue 2

It is with great pleasure that Caradt can announce the publication of the new issue of Making & Breakingarrow. We were able to attract an amazing group of contributors for this issue “On the Post-Contemporary”: Justin O’Connor, Marina Vishmidt, Geert Lovink, Angela Dimitrakaki, Patricia Reed, Suhail Malik, Dmitry Vilensky, Brian Holmes and Aiwen Yin. While each of their brilliant essays shines on its own for developing original and highly topical arguments and lines of thought, they also collectively form a rich and diverse debate on the notion of the post-contemporary. Thanks to our designers Patricia Reed (website) and Ananya Panda (issue layout) for the exceptional aesthetic quality of the presentation!  

 We’ll hope you enjoy this new issue of Making & Breaking!

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?
