Activities — Publications

LAPS Centre of Expertise distributes expertise on art and public space and stimulates discussion on this subject by organizing symposia, lectures, debates and exhibitions. The centre of expertise often organizes these presentations on art and public space in collaboration with other art institutions. Recent symposia are among others Event in Artistic and Political Practices (in collaboration with the University of Amsterdam), LOKO12 (in collaboration with SKOR) and Nut en Nadeel van het Promoveren in de Kunsten (in collaboration with DeFKa Campis, Assen).

LAPS Centre of Expertise presents the results of completed research and activities in book form. These publications can be reports of research, an accompanying publication for a project or an extensive contemplative work.

Recently LAPS Centre of Expertise compiled Open 24: Politics of Things: What Art & Design do in Democracy. It also cooperated on the publications Poster No. 524: Exploring the Contemporary Poster about the visual research on the medium of the poster by graphic designers René Put and Rianne Petter, and Denken in Kunst: Theorie en reflectie in het kunstonderwijs with a text by Jeroen Boomgaard.
