Institute HyperWerk of the FHNW Academy of Art and Design, Basel is turning 20!

The Institute HyperWerk of the FHNW Academy of Art and Design in Basel is celebrating its 20th anniversary. Together, students and staff are organising a 20-hour celebration offering a diverse programme of workshops, performances and lectures with local and international guests. Everyone is invited to join in (or opt out) at any time, be it on Saturday, in the middle of the night, or Sunday morning. Accommodation included!

Experience the core theme of HyperWerk: How can we live together? The we is inclusive and comprises human as well as non-human actors in the living environment. How can we—humans, animals, plants, fungi, bacteria, and machines—live together on this earth? How can we understand and document the interconnections among these different actors? How can we listen to those without a voice? These questions underpin all projects and discourse at the Institute HyperWerk.

Living together is not so easy. Debates about justice, participation, migration, digitalisation, sustainability, care work and food abound. This is precisely why HyperWerk sees designing structures for creating »togethers« as the primary challenge for the present and the future.

Like a seismograph, HyperWerk registers even faint and early signals of change. As a space of possibility for new forms of design education, the institute is concerned with teaching and learning about processes. HyperWerk creates an environment for students who want to develop the ability to co-design social transformation and exert active influence on society.

Please join us for lectures and workshops by students, staff and guests: Matthias Böttger, Mischa Schaub, Catherine Walthard and Regine Halter, Frances Valintine, Morgan JL Thorne and Matt Ward, Hengameh Yaghoobifarah, Tina Reden, Friedrich von Borries and many others. The full event programme—from book launch and party, to breakfast—is available at hyperwerk.ch.
