Plunged into a dynamic context of research and production, both local and international, developed by the school's faculty with their international partners, students encounter other realities, other ways of doing, thinking, and producing, which force them to leave their comfort zone, to invent new forms and practices. Confronted with approaches from art history, philosophy and critical theory, postcolonial and decolonial studies, activist and radical pedagogies, cultural studies, urban studies, gender issues, image theory, and film history, they participate in institutional projects (biennials, exhibitions) and artists' projects (production, performances), workshops, conferences, and tours.
Borrowing the tools of the ethnographer, the geographer, the historian, the architect, the designer, the strategist or the philosopher, the objective of these campuses is to create aesthetic, speculative and prospective zones, contributing to renew our perceptions, our conceptions, our ways of doing and engaging, in order to participate in the invention of a new reality.
Turned towards great contemporary stakes, cultural and economic globalization, game of the borders, impact of the digital technologies, rise of the identity politics, refoundation of the knowledge, and epistemological rupture initiated by the criticisms of the narratives of the modernity, they have for vocation the production of the forms of tomorrow.
