other way round

12pm to 6pm

other way round can mean many things: is it that we have gone the wrong way and should recalculate our itinerary? Or that we are on our way to totally uncharted territory? In this case, we are attempting to make visible diverse approaches to practice-based research. This 1st year PhD students’ exhibition brings together samples of research practice from very different fields, and tries to grow conversations from them. Spanning over fine arts, design and curating, the confrontation of this diverse work in one common space aims to create meaning from these impromptu interactions. By crystallising our ongoing practice at an arbitrary moment in
the PhD journey, we hope to offer a view of the research process and learn from it, as much as we hope to provide food for thought.

All exhibits will be on display 7-9th March 12-6pm. If you wish to attend scheduled events, please refer to this programme.

Event Program

Tuesday 7th March


Neil Farnan
Monopoly to Utopoly - a utopian exchange

The board game Monopoly encapsulates key features of our economy and celebrates some of its worst aspects. This ubiquitous game normalises socially useless rentier behaviour, although the intention of the original version was to do the opposite. Join us in evaluating this particular economic model and engage with new values, properties and currencies to design a more utopian economy. Or pop in later to have fun playing the redesigned Utopoly game.

Wednesday 8th March
