Visual Culture and Performance Design (VISPER) is a transdisciplinary research group that draws on the broad traditions of Performance (Studies) and Design (Thinking) in pursuing transformative research practices over a variety of fields.

Currently the group hosts research projects and interests on cultural production engaging with a wide scope of theaters, museums, cultural industries, urban and environmental activists, designers and entrepreneurs. The group has a particular commitment to developing new research formats, experimental methodologies (often involving embodied or visual elements), forms of participation and collaboration.
