This semester, the RASL minor is taking place again at RASL Spaces, Hillevliet.
During the minor, students will work in a team consisting of students from Codarts, WdKA, Erasmus University and Delft University on a self-selected matter of concern in the framework of “re-imagining tomorrow through arts and sciences”. Participating students come from a wide variety of studies such as audiovisual design, composition, jazz vocals, fashion design, arts and culture studies, political science, psychology, industrial design engineering, history and philosophy. Through engagement with practices of re-imagining tomorrow (in the form of examples, exercises and your own project), we situate the minor in a broader societal context of ecological devastation and historically shaped injustices, which demand the imagining of alternative futures. Practices of re-imagining tomorrow make us aware that traditional, disciplinary practices of knowing and doing are always already imaginative, as they create and reinforce specific ways of experiencing and knowing the world. By addressing and experiencing these worldmaking capabilities of current and future practices, we can start to work towards futures that are more socially and ecologically just. In the project students will have the space and opportunity to consider what these futures might look like and how we can start enacting them in the present. During classes as well as in projects, students will participate in a range of different activities, such as field research, practice-led workshops, screenings, close-listening and close-reading sessions.
