Tasmeem Doha 2017:
Analogue Living in a Digital World

Advisory Committee:
Cherif Amor, PhD, Chair of Interior Design
Dina Bangdel, PhD, Director of Art History
Patty Paine, Director of Liberal Arts & Sciences

Tasmeem Doha, hosted by VCUQatar, is a biennial international art and
design conference that attracts prominent speakers and artists from all
over the world. Tasmeem Doha addresses contemporary topics on art and
design, and brings together international designers, artists,
academics, students and industry professionals. Over the years, the
ambitious and timely themes of Tasmeem have gained widespread attention
and praise, while fostering partnerships that enhance the educational,
creative and cultural vitality of Qatar and beyond.

Tasmeem Doha 2017: Analogue Living in a Digital World aims to dialog
with art and design’s leading thinkers, educators and practitioners
whose ideas transcend media and speak to our human existence in a
technological society. The intent of this conference is to explore the
intersection between the analogue and digital within the context of our
lived experience, and to examine where the two modes differ,
intertwine, and coexist. By looking at past and present art and design
methodologies and practices, we endeavor to create a context for
examining the relevance of our current attitudes to discover new ways
to grow and evolve.

We are experiencing a paradigm shift, as aspects of our lives that were
formally analogue become digitized. This radical change impacts how we
define ourselves as individuals, and as creative beings. It challenges
our institutional foundations, and our roles in society. The gradual
evolution of the last several decades is steady and unrelenting, and
the ramifications of this transformation have just begun to be revealed
and interrogated. Is analogue thinking still relevant in a largely
digital world, or are analogue and digital approaches inherently
incompatible? Has digital media rendered analogue creative practices
and technology obsolete?

Tasmeem Doha 2017 welcomes contributions that address the theme of
‘Analogue Living in a Digital World’. Topics may include but are not
limited to:
– Analogue thinking in the digital age
– Analogue, digital and the creative process
– Interdisciplinary Connections: Bridging Art/Design, Humanities, and
the Sciences
– Impact of the Digital World on the Future of Art and Design
– Word/Image, Image/Word
– Educating Designers and Artists for the 21st Century: Emerging
Pedagogies in Art/Design/Architecture
