Interesting questions

Ever considered applying as researcher for the Jan van Eyck Academy in Maastricht (NL)?

Extrastatecraft, a project led by Keller Easterling asks interesting questions about the relation between protocol and practice. The JvE offers great facilities (including financial support) for extra-academic research and with the appointment of Florian Schneider as ‘advising researcher’, the design department might be ready for your F/LOSS energy.

How do organizations like the ISO (International Organization for Standardization) or McKinsey determine management protocols? How do construction networks, more than the singular creations of architects and urbanists, disseminate materials and processes that determine how the world is calibrated? How do markets and financial instruments create templates that shape space?

Only a few more days left to apply!
