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.
