Caradt Michel van Dartel will be keynote speaker at Reboot Fest 2021 in Portugal.
The situated turn in art and design
Humans are inseparable from the world around them. Yet time and again, human-oriented research and development considers them in isolation from their surroundings. This is particularly true in the domains of art and design, where convention has it that work is produced in studios and experienced in the sterile environs of art and design venues. In this lecture, Michel van Dartel will show that the stakes involved in this isolation are higher than they may appear at first glance. Connecting ideas from fields ranging from cognitive science to avant-garde art and design history, he argues that we need to consider aesthetics “in the wild” if we are to respond to this exigency.
