FINE conferences – Innovations and thoughts on 21th century art and design

20 November

The FINE (Intrinsic Phenomena of Nostreity and Experience) Conference is a collective effort that seeks a temporary reflection on the turn of the 21st century and on what happens through shared action, not only among people but also as perspectives within oneself.

These conferences, which take place within the framework of Barcelona Design Week, are based on a presentation open to the public of the practices and processes carried out within the framework of the University Master’s Degree in Research in Art and Design (MURAD) of EINA-UAB.

The session is conceived in two different formats. On the one hand, the presentation of the projects Qiáo and Design for designers, which delves into the virtual issue and the conditions of isolation. And on the other hand, the realization of two active creative workshops: Cala Nostra or the Italian Doctors (board game) and TNT – Tactile Narrative Workshop, which focus on the presential and the need to meet again.

These workshops aim to visualize, share and build the connections that are generated between the disciplines of art and design in a dystopian reality such as the current one.
