Somewhere’s film The Closer We Get (directed by Karen Guthrie) is screening at Curzon Goldsmiths on Tuesday, March 20th at 18:15 as part of Gold on Film, a festival celebrating films produced by Goldsmiths students, staff and alumni.
The screening will be followed by a Q&A with Co-Producer & DOP Nina Pope, who is one of the design practitioners supporting and advising our third year BA Design students as Studio mentors. Tickets can be booked online.
On 4 December, MA Interaction Design student Michael Mogensen will be part of a panel at the Corcoran School of Art & Design at the George Washington University in Washington DC called “Wisal, a Symposium on Cross-Cultural Collaboration”. Michael explains:
“I will present the collaboration between myself and Saudi artist Ahaad Alamoudi called “NIUN: Saudi Futures.” The project is supported by arts organisation Culturunners and funded by the King Abdulaziz Center for World Culture. The project consists of a film, an installation, and a series of events around our idea of one Saudi future; it responds in part to recent events in Saudi Arabia, as well as the distant past. The project is also my final project as part of the MA Interaction Design degree at Goldsmiths.”
The 2017 Design Snow Ball is happening on 14 December at the Rivoli Ballroom; tickets are £15 and can be bought from the Goldsmiths Student Union. All proceeds will go towards funding next year’s BA Design show.
We’re starting the first year of our new MA in Design: Expanded Practice with an all-day conference featuring an amazing line-up of speakers!
When: 3 October 2017, 10:00am – 6:00pm
Where: Hexagon, Lockwood Building
The archetypal museum is a concretization of the Enlightenment ‘knowledge project’. It is a storehouse of knowledge; gathering examples, categorising and classifying them and defining a field of knowledge and practice. This archetypical museum is a place to collect, preserve, interpret, and display items of artistic, cultural, or scientific significance (a) for the edification of publics, (b) as resources for the contemplation of ‘expert’ communities and/or (c) to act as a safety deposit to preserve things that have been deemed to be of cultural and historical importance (who deems them ‘important’ is a moot matter).
