RASL Summer Studio 2022
8-17 July, RASL Spaces, Rotterdam
Moving Shorelines and Floating Worlds: Re-imagining Tomorrow’s Water Climate through the Arts and Sciences
The RASL Summer Studio 2022 is a ten-day transdisciplinary workshop about re-imaging tomorrow’s water climate through the arts and sciences.
For this studio, we collaborate with the Rotterdam’s Municipality Water Program, which will design a brief for the participants of the Summer Studio that questions future scenarios for sustaining life in a Delta city situated some six meters below sea level. At the end of the ten-day session, participants will present the concepts, research, practices, and prototypes to the societal partners and mentors.
Participants will be mentored by: guest artists Lotte van den Berg and Bas Kortmann, and RASL faculty members Dr Robin van den Akker (Erasmus University), Arlon Luijten (Codarts), and Dr Vivian Sky Rehberg (WdKA). The three social partners of this studio are: MARIN , Blue21 and Rotterdams Weerwoord.
The RASL Summer Studio will take place from Friday 8th to Sunday 17th July and will be at RASL Spaces, Rotterdam. The application deadline is June 20th.
The Summer Studio welcomes artists, academics, scientists, designers, societal partners and people who would like to explore new research methods and develop collaborative practices that cross the boundaries between the arts and sciences. We immerse ourselves in practice-led workshops, field research, feedback sessions, excursions, collective dreaming, making and sharing.
