To enhance the understanding of our own practice within a larger field of contemporary mode of artistic production – between hybrid arts and critical design – we seek the exchange with and critique from external actors in similar and neighbouring fields. The board of critical questioners is formed of individuals from major institutes that host trans-disciplinary work. Their task is to contribute by posing critical questions that are expected to help locate the project in the current discourse.
