View on nka. It trains students with art It trains students with art and non-art backgrounds to develop a methodology for situating and materialising a multi-layered research project by the means of art.

The student's future operational fields are contemporary art, curatorial projects, extra-governmental entities, scientific research collaborations, museums, activism, social platforms, self-organised platforms, human rights activities, or a practice-based PhD.

In that frame, In that frame, the CCC Public Seminar " on practices " will run throughout the year once in a while attached to one or the other CCC seminar, with contributions by faculty members and guests. Seminar languages are English and French.

Participants are students of art and non-art backgrounds who want to work on a research project in a transdisciplinary environment. By building By building its pedagogy on the idea of trans-disciplinarity, the Program fosters thinking and working conditions that are composed of different practices, geographies, languages, and work-approaches to process an original research proposal in the context of an art academy.

Research methodologies, artistic thinking and public display strategies operate today in profoundly shifting geospatial and techno-political constellations. Globalisation, migration, computation and climate are a few of the keywords that point to reordering processes on a planetary scale within contemporary societies.

How can we make our way in the world through a situational understanding of our position within complexity? Where is the location from which to speak, in-between systems, technologies, generations, time-zones, borders and entangled histories? If the art of the 20th century produced a space to analyse social and political realities, then the art of the 21st century is the space to activate new vocabularies as realities inside of superstructures.

It consists of public sessions open to everyone and closed sessions for all students of CCC. The invited guests contribute to all seminars and modules of the curriculum.

An illustrated exploration of a groundbreaking work and its connections to New York's art and music scenes of the s. It represented a coming together of narrative voice-overs, singing and shouting voices, and jarring sounds and overlaid texts that proposed a historical genealogy of rock music and an ambitious thesis about the origins of North America's popular culture. Because of its passionate embrace of underground music, its low-fi aesthetics, interest in politics, and liberal approach to historiography, the video has become a landmark work in the history of contemporary moving image and art; but it has remained, possibly for the same reasons, one of Graham's least written about works—underappreciated and possibly misunderstood by the critics who otherwise celebrate him. This illustrated study of Graham's groundbreaking work fills that critical gap. Kodwo Eshun examines Rock My Religion not only in terms of contemporary art and Graham's wider body of work but also as part of the broader culture of the time. He explores the relationship between Graham and New York's underground music scene of the s, connecting the artistic methods of the No Wave bands—especially their group dynamics and relationship to the audience—and Rock My Religion 's treatment of working class identity and culture.
