Sophie Seita is among this year’s faculty for the Saas-Fee Summer Institute of Art in Berlin, whose programme focuses on Art and the Poetics of Praxis in Cognitive Capitalism in 2018.
Saas-Fee Summer Institute of Art (SFSIA) is a nomadic, intensive summer academy with shifting programs in contemporary critical theory. SFSIA stresses an interdisciplinary approach to understanding the relationship between art and politics. The program consists of seminar-style lectures, deep readings, and workshops. An evening lecture program is free and open to the public. SFSIA encourages all genre of artists, film-makers, poets, philosophers, architects, critical theorists, and curators whose practice could use an invigorating jolt of new theory to consider applying for the program.
