Institute of Contemporary Art, Design and Architecture (LMDA) of the Art Academy of Latvia announces the call for papers for the international symposium (Building) New Perspectives Through Practice-led Research in Art, Design and Architecture, which will take place at the Art Academy of Latvia from 9–11 November 2022.

Stories Editorial May 30, 2022

Gathering a multifaceted mix of interdisciplinary contributions to practice-led research from art, design and architecture, this symposium asks for abstracts of papers and projects that investigate how distinct perspectives can undermine traditional binary divides — be it the ones established between subject and object, urban and rural, living and non-living, architecture and users, algorithmic governmentality and its ethical dimensions or other binaries we are accustomed to.


Applicants are invited to submit abstracts for one of the following symposium tracks:

  • Building Assemblies: (post)digital and (post)human frameworks,
  • (Re)Building the practice: New mindsets and tools,
  • Building on crisis: emerging spatial practices in times of urgency,


The deadline for submitting abstracts is 30 June. More information on the symposium, track contents and application guidelines — on the Art Academy of Latvia homepage.
