Running for 100 days through October 1, SPM will feature over 30 new productions of public art, ranging from sculpture to performance, spread across the city and its neighboring town of Marl.

Art/Architecture in the Public Sphere at the Department of Architecture, University of Patras.

Teaching and research takes into consideration:

- the archival turn in contemporary art: towards the document, the archive and knowledge production
- the social turn: art practice in social spaces
- extra-disciplinary investigations in art and architecture
- dialogical, collective and relational practices
- the field of intervention actions in the public spheres
- the operation of education inside the art project
- the urban context of Patras through topical works and transtopical networks

Η διδασκαλία και έρευνα της τέχνης στην αρχιτεκτονική παίρνει υπόψη τα εξής:

- την αρχειακή στροφή της σύγχρονης τέχνης: προς το ντοκουμέντο, το αρχείο και την παραγωγή γνώσης.
- την κοινωνική στροφή: πρακτικές τέχνης σε κοινωνικούς χώρους.
- εξω-τομεακές (extra-disciplinary) διερευνήσεις στην τέχνη και αρχιτεκτονική.
- διαλογικές, συλλογικές και σχεσιακές πρακτικές.
- το πεδίο παρεμβατικών δράσεων στις δημόσιες σφαίρες.
- την ενσωμάτωση της εκπαίδευσης μέσα στο πρότζεκτ τέχνης.
- το αστικό περιβάλλον της Πάτρας μέσα από τοπικές εργασίες και διατοπικά δίκτυα.
