COOP study groups

(To see how the COOPs are embedded in our MA study trajectory you are advised to consult our SYLLABUS 2018-2019)

Seven COOP study groups are at the heart of the DAI's curriculum. They ask for active participation in & productive contributions to, curated, collaborative, un-disciplined, art research trajectories. They bring makers, researchers, writers, activists and curators together around well-defined and relevant questions and topics.

In the academic year 2018-2019 each DAI-student will join one out of seven study groups. Study groups are guided by tutorial teams which always consist of a practising artist, next to a curator and a scholar/researcher. 

The study groups gather for several days during each DAI Week + 4 days more ( the so-called "extension") to share research and to develop a group work. Ideally this group work comes into being as an entirely collaborative endeavour, but it may also be the umbrella for more or less individually produced works, carefully brought together by the study group. The outcome of each research trajectory will be shared with the public during  COOP SUMMIT 2019 in Cagliari (Sardinia) in June 2019.
