What can AI do for ŠPUD?
The School of Applied Arts and Design was founded in 1882 as the Royal National School of Crafts, which makes it the oldest educational institution of this kind in Croatia; the one that paved the way for all other subsequently founded schools and faculties of this kind. It is precisely this long tradition and a number of internal reforms that have resulted in School’s adaptability to the new educational paradigms, giving birth to an educational practice that transforms a regular art school into a haven of encouraging creativity for present and future generations.
With the exhibition, students and mentors reflect on the reach of artificial intelligence and their relationship to previous education and how it coexists in artistic processes. The premises of the School of Applied Art and Design are still under reconstruction after the earthquake in 2020. From the opposition of these two realities and dynamics, we are coming up with new sustainable concepts of coexistence, purposefulness and promise.
