Sixth Sense

At the Social Design Studio artistic methods and art based research strategies are developed and applied on conditions of life which create differences. These differences could be caused for example by sensorial disabilities or diseases like dementia. With new approaches and synthesizing knowledges of medicine, sociology, social work and related sciences with the arts the programme is aiming to open up innovative notions of perceiving, mapping and using cities and urban densities.

Exemplary transdisciplinary projects dealing with dementia or blindness are developing inclusive methods of empowerment, new knowledge and new languages of city behaviour. Such approaches aim to face differences also as a chance to improve the qualities of urban co-existence and a resulting individual autonomy.
