Date 2020-08-17 - 2020-12-20

This course investigates the role of art and the work of artists when it comes to addressing global challenges regarding the future of the oceans. Uncertainty, complexity, and fluidity within ocean research are challenging the borders of conventional forms of knowledge production. It opens up opportunities for interventions carried out within new alliances of agencies and collaborations. The production of knowledge across different fields of artistic practices and scientific research creates new understandings of the world we live in.
