About the cluster
Material / Technê / Materialisms is one of four research clusters within the School of Art at Edinburgh College of Art (ECA).
It is convened by Neil Mulholland, Professor of Contemporary Art Pactice & Theory.
In the 2016/17 academic year, the School of Art Friday Lectures - a public series of talks by leading national and international artists and thinkers - was themed around the School’s research clusters.
Four of the talks were linked to Material / Technê / Materialisms:
- 24th February 2017 - Kenny Hunter
- 3rd March 2017 - Robin Mackay
- 10th March 2017 - Cosey Fanni Tutti
- 17th March 2017 - David Sherry

A charrette is an intensive participatory group that engages a common enquiry. Atelier, Skye was a three-day charrette in May 2016 wherein a group of artists, curators, academic researchers and members of Atlas Arts worked with a series of common research ‘objects’ located in the north of the Isle of Skye (Trotternish, Waternish and Duirinish).
Commissioned by Sonic Acts, Florian Hecker’s A Script Machine for Synthesis (2015) was co-presented by Sonic Acts and Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam. This processed performance view is taken from original photography by Pieter Kers | Beeld.nu.
