Bridging art, design and technology through Critical Making
ACPA will appoint one PhD candidate and one junior researcher (artistic
research) as part of the NWO financed project "Bridging art, design and
technology through Critical Making." In this project, the concept of
Critical Making will be researched and developed in the context of critical
theory and artistic research in order to address creative practices in
which art, design and technology fundamentally and practically intersect.
For more information about the project, please visit the project webpage.

The research consortium is headed by ACPA Professor Dr. Janneke Wesseling
(Leiden University) as main applicant and Dr. Florian Cramer (Rotterdam
University of Applied Sciences) as co-applicant. Het Nieuwe Instituut in
Rotterdam, Waag Society in Amsterdam and West Den Haag are involved as
consortium partners. Under the supervision of senior researchers affiliated
with the institutes involved, a PhD candidate and a junior researcher will
work on two subprojects and will be located with one or more consortium
partners. These positions are open to artists and designers. Artistic
research provides the methodological framework. Please follow the links
