Epistemological Dizziness:

ECAM Graduate School Invites PhD candidates

The ECAM Graduate School of the FHNW Academy of Art and Design in Basel is a cooperation partner of the Art University Linz within the PhD programme. The ECAM Graduate School hence would like to invite PhD candidates of the University of Art and Design Linz to participate in the current study program on epistemological dizziness.

The ECAM Graduate School aims at investigating contemporary cultural and economic transformations through practice-based, artistic research and contributes to the advancement of research-based pedagogies. The study program is an integral part of the ECAM Graduate School and also acts as an interface to other students of the FHNW Academy of Art and Design and an interested public. The current program is part of Cluster III of ECAM: Impact of Culture and is curated by Johannes Bruder, Researcher at the FHNW Academy of Art and Design in Basel.

The study program consists of colloquia and public lectures. If interested, doctoral candidates can register for the individual events at any time by contacting Dr. Linda Ludwig and Maja Riegler (ecam.hgk@fhnw.ch). You can find the complete program and further elaborations here: ecam.ch
