Institute of Contemporary Art, Design and Architecture (LMDA) of the Art Academy of Latvia announces the call for papers for the international symposium "(Building) New Perspectives Through Practice-led Research in Art, Design and Architecture", which will take place at the Art Academy of Latvia from 9-11 November 2022.

Gathering a multifaceted mix of interdisciplinary contributions to practice-led research from art, design and architecture, this symposium asks for abstracts of papers and projects that investigate how distinct perspectives can undermine traditional binary divides – be it the ones established between subject and object, urban and rural, living and non-living, architecture and users, algorithmic governmentality and its ethical dimensions or other binaries we are accustomed to.

Applicants are invited to submit abstracts for one of the following symposium tracks:

- Building Assemblies: (post)digital and (post)human frameworks;
- (Re)Building the practice: New mindsets and tools;
- Building on crisis: emerging spatial practices in times of urgency.

The deadline for submitting abstracts of max of 300 words is 30 June 2022. To submit the abstract, please email your submission to with the subject line: “Open Call Building New Perspectives SURNAME_ POSITION TITLE”. Documents must be in MS Word format. Please include five keywords, a short biography (80 words maximum) and the track you would like to participate. Applicants will receive confirmation of their participation no later than 30 August.

The symposium will feature a supplementary session DEBATES ON LANDSCAPES AND IDENTITIES held as a part of the State Research Program project "Landscapes of Identities: History, Culture, and Environment" (IDEUM, Nr. VPP-LETONIKA-2021/1-0008).
