InhalteWhen every argument is equal, how is it possible to distinguish between truth and falsehood? What implications does our daily life or intimate sphere have on our mode of being a "citizen"?

In this module we will focus on the process of artistic work, both practically and theoretically. The students will be expected to continue with their own research and additionally to create a context for their work.

In the first semester we explored the theme of equality, looking at this concept within the frame of 2 books: Returning To Reims by Didier Eribon and Baise-Moi by Virginie Despentes.
