Future Sense: Symposium I: Sigil Collective

Sustainable development can be addressed from multiple viewpoints and disciplinary angles.

The discourse can address the issue from the perspective of natural resource and energy management, with regard to social justice and the distribution of wealth, or we can consider sustainability as a systemic issue intrinsic to processes in economy, society, and culture. Under the title future sense, the FHNW Academy of Art and Design (HGK FHNW) presents a loose series of lectures at the Campus of the Arts in Basel, inquiring into the question of how artists and designers can contribute to a sustainable future.
