Poiesis Means Making

The world we inhabit is shaped and reshaped by the process of active making. An international, interdisciplinary initiative based at the Institute for Public Knowledge at New York University in partnership with the BMW Foundation Herbert Quandt and the Gerda Henkel Foundation, the Poiesis Fellowship seeks to understand this process as well as the products that come out of it.
