On Thursday 18th and Friday 19th of April 2019, in the Centre of New Media & Feminist Public Practice, the third seminar/workshop of the programme
The 3rd Seminar, ‘Discourses, Methods and Practices’ will focus on the methods and the discourses developed in the creative and cultural field and their extensions to other fields in the late 20th and early 21st centuries. A series of theoretical approaches, such as marxism, feminism, psychodynamic theory, and post-colonial critique, have shaped the cultural and creative field. The aim of the seminar is to understand the principles and ideas that led to a series of new methods, methodologies and practices from aesthetic journalism, video-essays, relational aesthetics and aesthetic antagonism, to artistic activism.
Workshop: During the second day of the seminar will be presented audio, video, production, post-production and processing programs that will be available at the CENTER and can be used by the seminar participants to experiment, produce and process their own material.
The workshop participants, under the appropriate guidance (individually and in groups) by the Centre’s research team and in collaboration with the workshop coordinator, will have the opportunity to create their own projects to be presented in relevant exhibitions, festivals and cultural events, along with works by artists who work in this field. The participants will also receive a certificate of attendance, upon completion.

On Thursday 16 May and Friday 17May 2019, in the Centre of New Media & Feminist Public Practice, the fourth seminar/workshop of the programme will focus on the Madiated Body.
Seminar: The exuberance of the term new media describes the fact that the term includes a series of developments in technology that are associated with the emergence of a number of practical and theoretical approaches. We undertake an overview of the axes describing the relationship between gender studies and urban studies with new media and the consolidation, especially since the 1990s, of an important field in contemporary practice. Focusing on two broad study areas described a. as 'Art and Technology' or 'media archeology' related to the relationship to more 'traditional' technologies b. as 'the art of new media' linked to the most contemporary technologies: telecommunications, media, digital technology, the internet. The seminar focuses on the body's new media and public space / publicity issues: Real time, interactivity, (physical) body. New technological applications, digital, virtual reality, executive practices and technology, internet, augmented reality give new enlarged dimensions and expressive paths but also have many limitations. This module will examine the vocabulary of the post-human condition in relation to architecture, art and humanities. There will also be an introduction to the term cyborg as a conceptual tool and as a way of considering the social and material development of contemporary social environments.
Workshop: Performer and writer Erica Skourtis will present her work and focus on exercises using
the methods she has developed. Biography and physical inscriptions in performance and the representation of subjectivity. Random archives of engagement and everyday life from Whatsapp to open documents of self-narration and consumption. Sound, Voice and Technology as methodology.
On Wednesday May 8, 2019, at 7.30 pm, at the amphitheatre of the Department of Planning and Regional Development, Professors Dimitris Fatouros and Giannis Peponis will be granted an Honorary Doctorate of the Department of Architecture of the University of Thessaly.
