Figure 1.
Schematic embodied decision-making scenario. Dotted line arrows indicate possible paths for the mouse to move between obstacles depicted by shaded rectangles. Solid curves indicate the distribution of potential directions at three points in time. At point (a), the distribution can be averaged into a single central direction. At point (b) the distribution begins to separate, but averaging is still possible. At point (c), however, the average is no longer a viable direction and a decision must be made between directions to the right or left.

Year 1+2: Philosophy

Lecturer: Lot
Date: Wed 14.09. | Year 1 - Begin: 10.00 h | Year 2 - Begin: 13.30 h

This Wednesday you will have your first of ten sessions in Philosophy. By studying philosophical literature, you will gain knowledge and learn to reflect on theoretical problems. This course will introduce influential ancient philosophers like Plato and Aristotle and familiarize you with the significant work of modernist thinkers like Descartes, Spinoza and Kant. Besides that, you will exercise the classical philosophical dialogue, which means you will actively work with philosophical concepts and ideas and formulate your own questions. Aim of this course is to open your mind, to help you to clarify your own thoughts and express them in written form.

Year 1 & 2: Montage Theory

Lecturer: Katharina
Date: Tue 13.09. | Year 1 - Begin: 10.00 h | Year 2 - Begin: 13.30 h

The course entails 5 sessions which will introduce you to Image- and Montage Theory and familiarise you with the necessary terminology to speak about images. We will discuss (moving) images with regard to their intensities as well as their significant meanings. Images should not merely be read by decoding signs but also recognised in their materiality and texture. You will develop a vocabulary to speak about various aspects of image assemblages and film montages.

AKI Deleuze Cluster


On the 17. and 18. May 2017, the AKI Academy of Art and Design, University of the Arts ArtEZ will host the Annual National Deleuze Scholarship Conference THE GRIN WITHOUT A CAT. Each year one university in the Netherlands is chosen to organise this national conference and highlight a specific aspect in the work of Gilles Deleuze.

This cluster of Deleuze events unites scholars, philosophers, students and artists. The sessions will have their KICK OFF on Monday the 26. September 2016. Invited speakers are Prof. Dr. Julieanna Preston, Filip van Dingenen, Andrej Radman and Dr. Marc Boumeester.

The seminar will be followed up by regular meetings of the Deleuze reading group under the lead of Agnieszka A. Wolodzko. In her programme DELEUZE's APPRENTICESHIP she will not only introduce the philosophy of Gilles Deleuze (and Félix Guattari), but elaborate on the multiple connections and uncomfortable lines of what drives thinking and creativity.

12:00 Lecture/Performance Practicing Care by Prof.Dr. Julieanna Preston | Open to all
The lecture Practicing Care introduces three recent site-responsive durational performance works that inquire into the nuances of this issue: IN COLD HEAT (2016), water-logged (2016) and bit-u-men-at-work (2015). The art works are informed by feminist philosophy, new materialism and literature on the subject of vitalism. Julieanna Preston is a Professor of Spatial Practice at The College of Creative Arts, Massey University, New Zealand. Her scholarly and creative practice operates across art, architecture, design and performance writing and draws from feminist philosophy, new materialism and discourse on vitalism. See her website for details and examples of her work.

This is not a course on Deleuze’s philosophy but rather about how to think with Deleuze. You will not be taught yet another system what to think and know. If you are looking for yet another tool to master knowledge, these events will disappoint you. Populated by encounters, we will learn together the path of multiple connections, uncomfortable lines of what drives thinking and creativity. Apprenticeship means that you are not to directly, unreflexively apply the concepts of Deleuze’s philosophy on your work, but to problematize it, see what is important for you, for today. We will focus on problems that appear in the process of creative thinking and practice. We will see how philosophical concepts are further generated within creative images, sounds, spaces and movements; and how they immediately generate new people, new forms of thinking. Consequently, we will see how the process of thinking and creation is already a political and ethical act.

Education in design is about the design of education: what we learn and how we learn are inseparable. Dichotomies such as content and form, figure and ground, or inside and outside serve no useful purpose. It is the task of educators to integrate de-stratification and holistic approaches within pedagogic practices – processes that should include the design of education itself.
