[RadaR] A detection system or device for determining the direction and distance of an object.
RadaR is a platform for theoretical and critical reflection on contemporary art. Published annually, each issue is devoted to a specific visual art issue, which it intends to treat in a transversal manner, by calling upon a plurality of authors.
As the result of an original collaboration between the Design master’s degree and the Critique-Essais, écriture de l’art contemporain master’s degree at the university of Strasbourg, this online journal is composed of articles produced by the students themselves and contributions from specialists in the themes discussed.
Field/discipline: arts, social sciences, new technologies. (art history, art criticism, art sociology, art theory, post-digital studies, visual arts, graphic design).
Objectives: to question and analyse contemporary artistic practices, through a critique that relies on different disciplines of the human sciences. To articulate pedagogical and scientific issues in order to participate in the dissemination and sharing of scientific, technical and artistic culture.
Target audience: the journal is aimed at an international audience, composed of specialists in art, art criticism and new technology, as well as non-specialists, Internet users who are curious and sensitive to one or other of the subjects covered.
Features: the journal also offers the reader a high quality critical apparatus (bibliography and glossary for each theme) and various audio-visual supports.
RadaR has received funding from the “Initiatives of Excellence” (Idex) programme, which is managed by the French Ministry of Research, Innovation and Science and the National Centre for Scientific Research (CNRS), as part of the “Investissement d’avenir” programme.
