The Art and Design in the Next Economy course is offered by Erasmus University Rotterdam.
Our next economy creates new opportunities and roles for prospective designers and artists. An artist or designer is an important player in tapping into the potential of our new world. We see large companies merging into monopolistic conglomerates in one side of the spectrum and on the other hand we witness the advent of bottom-up economical, social and cultural initiatives that intend to re-define production, transaction, distribution and authorship under the topic of the next economy. This movement will significantly alter the way people live and work together, and, consequently, alter the social and cultural fabric of the public domain. How will these developments change visual culture at large? How will they change the way people perceive and use the public domain, both physically and digitally? Will there be a paradigm shift regarding the relationship between the natural and technological environment? In what way will people re-invent themselves when the next economy affects their lives as citizens, producers and consumers? How resilient does an artist or designer need to be in its practice to deal with this evolution?
