Extracurricular Activities

Critical Thinking and Creative Communication

Every semester, IMCCI students take part in extracurricular activities that help expand their knowledge on local and international creative industries. Museum visits, seminars, day and weekly trips as well as special projects are only a few examples of opportunities students have to talk to professionals and learn, first-hand, about the inner workings and challenges of the industries.

Artist Talk “Body as Object” – Heidi Voet

Voet works has often employed everyday objects as an agent to redirect our attention to the under-noticed reality of economic and power imbalance in our society. Retaining a critical yet humorous quality in her practices, she has realised multidisciplinary projects and works often through labour-intensive production processes. By sharing her inside thought on her practices, we experience the process of how the idea been develop such as how physical movement of a City can transform to an artwork by using different materials and placement of artwork.

Art & Science Interactions in Society/Art & Ethics – Lucas Evers
Lecture and Workshop

There is a still growing interest of artists to work with living materials, with living organisms, with living systems. These works are 1) always performative by nature of the living and acting component and 2) always hold the responsibility of taking care of the living element. That responsibility brings about moral and ethical elements within the artwork, in cases closely related to the ethical elements that are evaluated by ethics expert panels in scientific research.
