This topic-based course takes the form of a studio-based workshop led by a specialist practitioner in the visual arts. It provides the opportunity for students to undertake interdisciplinary study in a focused area of studio practice under the tutelage of a leader in the field. Workshop Atelier aims to utilise the skills of visiting artists to the School of Art, or to tap the specific skills of existing staff, in projects designed to expand the technical and conceptual skills of students that can then be applied and developed in their own studio discipline.


This course may be delivered as a semester length course or offered as an intensive.


This course is repeatable for credit, up to a maximum of 24 units, and if repeated must be repeated with a different topic each time.

Learning Outcomes

Upon successful completion, students will have the knowledge and skills to:

  1. demonstrate an understanding of techniques, processes and concepts taught as part of the course;
  2. synthesise new techniques and concepts with their established studio-based skills; and
  3. show awareness of historical and theoretical contexts relevant to the course.

Other Information

The information below is relevant to the topic MoneyLab: Art & Financialisation offered in Semester 2, 2020.


What is the future of art and design at a time of hyper-capitalism and climate crisis? How might artists respond to these issues? And what methods are open to artists and designers wanting to intervene in or decentralize economies towards the Global South?


This edition of Workshop Atelier will give students an opportunity to work with some of the most complex and pressing issues facing the world today. MoneyLab is a network of artists, activists, and geeks experimenting with forms of financial democratisation, nestled under the Institute of Networked Culture, Amsterdam. Coinciding with the first MoneyLab workshop in the southern hemisphere to be held in Canberra in November 2020, this course will allow students to work in diverse media and art forms to generate interventions in and experiments with the digital economy, interrogating key themes such as radical finance, art markets, post-colonial platforms and their politics, along with life after the climate crisis. Students’ work will have a real-world outcome as part of MoneyLab and benefit from an international audience.
