UNIDEE – The University of Ideas is an educational program investigating the relationship between art and the public sphere, and combining theory with practice. Through a new program based on weekly research and a project laboratory under the guidance of a mentor and the active participation of a guest, the residency modules developed for 2016 focus on three new macro topics: research, gift, and alteration. Kicking off in April, over the first 7 modules, the program saw the participation of 50 residents, including established professionals and exceptionally gifted individuals currently completing their BA, MA or PhD degrees, representing 18 nationalities worldwide. They are visual and performance artists, curators, architects, critics, PhD candidates, anthropologists, museum professionals, etc.

SACI’s own graduate instructor, Daria Filardo, is mentoring this October at UNIDEE:
