Future events: Symposium - What Transdisciplinary Knowledge Looks Like

ABRA symposium - “What Transdisciplinary Knowledge Looks Like”

The “What Transdisciplinary Knowledge Looks Like” symposium showcases contemporary knowledge alchemists: designers, artists, and scientists who transcend disciplinary boundaries in order to discover and to test alternative projections of technologies and modes of thinking. Are they rogue agents of provocation, or pioneers of future professions?
