kontainer is an aggregator of the publications on art, design and technology by the UOC. These publications include journals with more than ten years of existence that have achieved recognition in the fields of design and art respectively, with a quality and a considerable following: Mosaic and Artnodes, Journal on Arts, Science and Technology. It also includes the blogs Design Matters promoted by the Chair in Design and Multimedia Creation and Art Matters, a more dialogic aspect of Artnodes, originated in the UOC-Laboral Digital Art and Culture Postgraduate studies and currently directly connected to the subject “The Visual Arts Sector” in the Master’s Degree in Cultural Management, as well as to other subjects related to art.
These online dissemination initiatives keep audiences that diverge and sometimes overlap, but that definitely share fields of interest and that are capable of engaging in an enriching dialogue between them, which leads to exploring those fields from different perspectives, and with different discursive styles.
The aggregator stems from the need to promote this fertile “conversation” between the publications, together with the intention of linking contents, connecting audiences, generating networks and reaching out to different entities, researchers, students and citizens interested in the field of creativity, as well as the interest in promoting the visibility of each of these initiatives.
