HSE Art and Design School and HSE Doctoral School in Arts & Design invite theoreticians or artists to take part in the international conference «Theories and Practices of Art and Design: sociocultural, economic and political contexts»
This year the conference will be devoted to the future of art and art research in the 21st century. It will also address the role and function of art and design in modern society.
