MIT Program in Art, Culture and Technology

ACT explores art, in its broad, complex and global history and in its contemporary forms, in conjunction with its relations to culture, science, technology, and design. This investigation occurs in ACT’s academic offerings and public programs and is buttressed by research of faculty, fellows and guests of ACT.  Bridges between MIT discipline groups and departments are another facet of these encounters. Research manifests itself in individual and collaborative forms and includes work that investigates, creates and bridges practices involving time, movement and space: cinema, video, sound, performance, photography, experimental media and new genres, conceptual and spatial experiments with architecture and design, writings and publications.  Critical thinking, knowledge mining, and creative engagement, along with explorations of changing public and private spheres are of particular relevance. “Art on a civic scale,” can now be understood as encompassing many subjectivities and forms of migratory thinking and action to engage a critically transformative view of the world. The Program in Art, Culture and Technology is part of the Department of Architecture, within the School of Architecture + Planning at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.
