This research seminar examines how research, art and experience can intertwine. Seminar introduces research practices in art from different fields which employ, assess and challenge experience. The aim of the seminar is to bring together variety of ways in which research practices in art can enrich the discourse of experience research. We hope to gather interdisciplinary discussions that share this aim. The program consists of a keynote by prof. ALVA NOË (Berkeley, CU) and presentations of professors, post-doc researchers and doctoral students from Aalto University and the University of the Arts Helsinki.
