Economia at Willem de Kooning Academy
Lecture by Olga Mink and Wiepko Oosterhuis
Join us at the Q8 Studium Generale - Next Economy: Next Attitudes
“Resilience, frugality, adaptability, simplicity, inclusivity, empathy, and passion, all of which are essential to compete and win in a complex world. Adopting” Navi Radjou, Jugaad Innovation: A frugal and flexible approach to innovation for the 21st century.
The ‘Next Economy’ refers to new definitions of production, transaction, consumption, distribution and authorship /ownership in a rapidly changing world, fused by technological disruptive innovations. We live in a world of The Internet of Things where ‘things’ are invisibly connected through data and networks. But we can also take control, in bottom-up initiatives driven by self-production, like Maker Culture or in (local) sharing economies. The way we relate to industry, nature, culture and society has changed and traditional roles between producers, designers and consumers are challenged.
How can we make sense of this chaotic evolution? Which mind-, skill- and toolset do we, as future artists and designers, need for the ‘Next Economy’? In the Studium Generale program, the Commercial Practices explore new and yet undefined roles of creative practitioners in future economical scenarios: as critical key players, instigators, influencers or collaborators. Key question: how do we ‘make’ this future? We will look at how future consumer behaviour affects the way we consume, shop, live, explore emerging bottom-up markets and discuss how resilient artists and designers can be in these new economical contexts.
