Call For Papers

NORTHERN WORLD MANDATE

Towards Open and Participative Cities
24-26 May 2012 Helsinki Finland hosted by Aalto University School of Art and Design
under the umbrella of Cumulus International Association of Universities and Colleges of Art, Design and Media that is the only global association representing art, design and media education in the world. It was founded in 1990 and has today 176 prominent members from 44 countries".

"Open, participative cities: how design knowledge can support public services in the development of open, participative human environment"

The Cumulus conference, interlinked in the World Design Capital Helsinki 2012, is organized in the premises of Aalto University, in the School of Art and Design, Helsinki, Finland and in the neighboring city of Espoo. The conference program has the opportunity to include pre-conferences and site events.

The Cumulus conference organizing committee is pleased to announce the first call for abstracts/proposals.

We invite proposals for papers from the following themes

1. OPEN, INTERACTIVE CITY
Public space is interesting question. Is it declining? Transport is supposed to be more public in the future, but there is a privacy demand in the public spaces of transportation. Is a space only public when there is interaction discussion and politics involved? Or does shared material environment or share objects make a space public? Ethical consumption initiatives, and the politics involved in private consumption, make the commercial spaces public in a new way.

2. INNOVATIVE SERVICES
How are traditional product-service-systems changing? What are the new ways to organize production chains (car sharing etc.)? What kind of actors are/can be engaged in provision of services? What is the role of public authorities, civic society, small business etc.? What about co-operatives? What kind of spaces and interactions do particular services imply?

3. DESIGNING SUSTAINABILITY
Can we have sustainability in design, what kind of sustainability results from interventions by design professionals? How various design tools and other elements of the design profession fit into this? What kind of sustainabilities are issued, based on these tools, such as LCA?

4. WHAT IS ARTISTIC RESEARCH?
What is artistic research? What is the role of artworks in it? How is artistic research related to various traditions of combining art and research: a) Research for art, b) Research of art, c) Art for research, d) Art + theory = research? Why are (some) artists trying to combine art and research? What can be gained with it? What are the possible dangers or failures of it? What is it needed for? What is "artistic knowledge" or "art's own knowledge"? What is included in it, what separates it from so called scientific knowledge? In what sense is art research? How should art and research be combined in the university context?

5. DIALOGUE OF ART AND DESIGN IN EDUCATION
Design has its roots in artistic expressions, hands on practice and in the rethinking of the existing. What is the role of art in design education? How is design integrated in art education? How do these two go about? This track welcomes submissions that reflect these questions from art education to industrial design and beyond.

6. FUNCTION OF ART IN CONTEMPORARY SOCIETY
Is art a) a way of killing time and a way of momentarily forgetting the reality, or b) a potentially profitable commercial business like any other, or c) a way of facing and changing the reality? How can art, artistic knowledge and artistic practices be used or embedded in society, for example in dealing with social and political issues?
