About the Friday Lectures:
The Friday Lectures are organized as a thematic series of five presentations throughout the academic year 2012-13 with the aim to give master students an unexpected, yet inspirational education experience. During the autumn, we'll examine search-of-truth technologies and their impact on artists, innovators, designers and citizens. Can we trust photographs as witnesses? Could criminology be seen as an ideology? What really happened? These questions will be answered.
Arranged by Maria Lantz, President of Konstfack together with Nina Beckmann, Artistic Director of the Friday Lectures.
Save the dates! Upcoming Friday Lectures; 26/10, 9/11, 16/11 and 23/11.
