Post Doctoral Research

Luis Berríos-Negrón

UmArts is delighted to welcome Luis Berríos-Negrón as the first UmArts Postdoctoral Research Fellow in Architecture and Art, in partnership with Bildmuseet and Umeå School of Architecture (UMA).  Luis Berríos-Negrón investigates the greenhouse as metaphor, effect and technology. Luis’s practice unarchives the Greenhouse as support structure, a model of early warning, and a history of colonial botany. The postdoc research will develop a new Transhemispheric project between Scandinavia and Puerto Rico to rethink colonization, create new ways of replanting and extending the growing season.

UmArts Postdocs

UmArts is recruiting an exciting new team of interdisciplinary postdoctoral researchers. The postdocs are a central part of the UmArts research environment developing new art, architecture and design practices that generate a critical and creative discourse within the public realm. In 2023 we will advertise for two new positions in Architecture and AI, and Design and AI as part of the WASP-HS Art and AI project.

Artists in Residence

From 2023-2025 UmArts will be hosting an artist in residence for a month each year. Proposals can address any of the UmArts research focus areas: Art and AI, the Geopolitics of the Forest, Displacement and hospitality, and the wider themes of the commons, planetarity and the nuclear anthropocene. We welcome applications from the visual arts, textiles, craft and music.
