How does the dialogue among arts, design, science, and society help us question our relations of interdependence with life and technology? La Chaire Arts & Sciences was created in 2017 by École Polytechnique, École Nationale Supérieure des Arts Décoratifs-PSL and the Fondation Daniel and Nina Carasso.
Their shared ambition is to strengthen links among creation, research, and civil society. In order to take action together in the face of ecological emergency, societal uncertainties, and technological and financial trends that do not take the common good into account, it seems crucial to reconsider our relationships of interdependence(s), our forms of interaction, and our perceptible relationships between humans and non-humans.
By combining research-creation, pedagogical innovations, and “publicization” actions, La Chaire Arts & Sciences participates in widespread cooperative actions that put priority on the perceptible experience, training through practice, multidisciplinary projects and gatherings, as well as on original formats that renew relationships with the public.
