By drawing from the diverse academic backgrounds of the masters students, transdisciplinary-teaching tries to create a space of mutual understanding of artistic and scientific practices. It investigates our relationship(s) to the many roles Science and Technology assume in society, culture, everyday life. It asks whether research should become a part of our lives. Transdisciplinary research reflects on methods to understand our world. Themes are derived from issues that create a high degree of uncertainty within societies. This point of view involves the investigation (and the corresponding in-depth study) of social and political processes, the relation, application, and development of artistic and scientific positions, methods, media, and organisations. Thus, it implies researching an oft-controversial societal thematic space, where the disciplinary, scientific-artistic ivory tower is infiltrated, where students locate and explore – and possibly generate themselves – more or less conspicuous socio-technical ruptures in our society.
