Topic outline

  • General

    Please note! When you register to the course on SISU you need to select one of the studio groups. This selection is not final. You are not tied to that selection and it also does not guarantee a seat in that specific group. The actual group selection will happen during the first weeks of the course.

    The groups will have specific priority orders for the final selection in the case that they are overbooked. For example, this course is a compulsory course for VCD students, so students from Visual Communication Design will have priority in the VCD themed groups. Some of the groups might also require some prerequisites.

    For the 2023 course, we offer the following thematic studio groups:

    • Information Design (Rupesh Vyas)
    • Visual Narratives (TBA) Cancelled
    • Type and Written Language (Tuomas Kortteinen)
    • Self-Organized Publishing (Indrek Sirkel)
    • Interactive and Immersive Art (Matti Niinimäki)
    • Polisfonia - Politics and Sonic Practices (Antti Ikonen/Matteo Pra Mio)
    • Material situations and spatial arrangements, (art)piece is between people (Pia Euro)
    • Story Ecologies (Lucy Davis)
