*Critique 2013: An international conference reflecting on creative practice
in art, architecture, and design*

*Call for participation*

Critique, and by extension criticism, is a vital part of both the everyday
creative-practice and teaching in the creative disciplines. The critique of
creative works, such as buildings, drawings, images, or artworks, is
pivotal for creative practitioners and the broader public to understand the
work’s creative and cultural value. In other words, not just judgements of
the aesthetic pleasure that the creative work might provide, but, more
broadly, what cultural values and critical positions are expressed by the
work. However, there are fewer and fewer opportunities and forums in which
to mount such cultural critiques of creative practice and its production.
The nature and role of critique is changing. So to the public’s perceived
value of critique has waned since the 60s, and today is largely thought of
as exclusionary intellectual navel-gazing that only permeates the walls of
universities and academic journals. The more familiar everyday practice of
debating the latest shock-jock celebrity gossip or news-cycle driven
political sound-bite seems preferable to deeper and more meaningful
interrogations of cultural and environmental questions. It would appear
that perhaps both the critique and the critic are in need of cultural
reinvention.



*Critique 2013* aims to provide a forum that will to bring together engaged
professionals and scholars from various disciplinary backgrounds, fields of
knowledge, production, and methodological approaches to discuss and debate
the role, value and future of both traditional and emerging forms of
critique; such as, written critique in the form of blogs, wikis, and social
media, to newsprint, to academic journals; opinion versus critique; verbal
critique; relationship between critics and creative practitioners; designed
artefacts as critique; and curated exhibitions as critique. Specifically,
this conference aims to explore the following three broad categories of
critique:

a)      *Critique* in *design education* and *creative practice* (verbal &
visual, all forms)

b)     *Self-critique* in *design education* and *creative
practice*(reflective practice)

c)      *Critique* through *creative works* of *things/ideas/policy/ in the
world* (design as research)



We invite contributions from a broad range of disciplines that are
concerned with the creative and professional practice of criticism
including, but not limited to; design, the fine arts, architecture,
interior design, industrial design, urban planning, craft, media,
performance, music, exhibition curation, museology, philosophy, education,
journalism, and governance and policy.



The following themes are a guide for contributors to *Critique 2013* to
consider:

·       *Advocacy & Brokerage* – the role of the critique of government
policy and regulatory authorities by design brokerage organisations.

·       *Journalism* – the role of the critique of design in newspapers,
magazines and professional journals.

·       *Social Media & online Commentary* – the role of critique through
social media (Twitter & Facebook) and other forms of online, or
technologically-mediated commentary.

·       *Opinion vs Critique* – the changing relationship between public
opinion and objectively informed critique in creative practice, design
education and the public; language, accessibility, gatekeepers to taste,
shock jocks.

·       *Illustration* – the role of critique through satire, analogy, or
metaphor, as a means to comment on design and culture.

·       *Drama & Film *– the role of critique in narrative commentaries

·       *Music* – the role of music in critically engaging in narrative
commentaries about historical and/or contemporary cultural practices.

·       *Reflective Practices* – roles and methods of self-evaluation by
creative practitioners in creative practice, higher education, and doctoral
models.

·       *Design critique in higher education* – pedagogies and education
practices in engaging peers and students in oral and written critique.

·       *Exhibition Curation as Critique* – the methods and role of
critique in visual arts exhibition curation.

·       *Post-critical theory* – the role of critique in/of creative works
that are un-critical.

·       *Judgement* – the methods and role of critical judgement in
theorists such as Emmanuel Kant, Jacques Derrida, Manfredo Tafuri.

·       *Critique through Creative Speculation* – the methods and role of
speculative design projects as critical devices to discuss, problematise
and theorise upon potential alternative techniques, paths, and/or futures.

·       *Other* – anything and everything that considers the nature, effect
and affect of critique.
