The subject Critical Practices in Arts, Sciences and Technologies fosters students' understanding of situated practice and offers them the opportunity to expand their interests in the broad field of sciences and technologies. Within this subject, students need to develop proposals that are discursively and/or operationally inscribed in a given context. This subject invites students to think of their own work as an indivisible link between theory and practice, in the form of an action that consciously examines and considers the premises from which it operates and the relationship it establishes with the world.


Critical practices: action in art as a link between theory and practice in the field of sciences and technologies. Referents, contexts, forms and methods of critical practices in the field of sciences and technologies. Development of a personal artistic practice within a real and/or discursive context in the domain of sciences and technologies, with an emphasis on the operational and epistemic frameworks it deploys and the relationship with the audience.
