Master-Symposium: Copy Paste & Rights
On Documentary, Documentarism and Post-Mediality in Four Testscenarios
|Nummer und Typ||MAF-MAF-Po00.19H.008 / Modul|
|Veranstalter||Departement Kunst & Medien|
|Voraussetzungen||Course language: English (unless only German speaking participants are attending the course)|
|Lernziele / Kompetenzen||The aim of this seminar is to illuminate the fictional, speculative and affective strategies of the documentary in art.|
|Inhalte||However, it is no longer the integration of documentary strategies into art or a representative, i.e. naive, documentarism that is to be discussed centrally here. Our aim will be to take an approach to the mediality of the documentary in the contemporary experimental and aesthetic practices. We thematize the media-based and reflexive modes of operation, which are also referred to as the documentary second order. In other words, we ask what is not considered in conventional forms of documentation and documentary and speculate on which queer-feminist, postcolonial and multi-species perspectives could be promoted by artistic practices. And how does this affect our imagination of what we think is true and real?|
The four-day block seminar will therefore address the following topics: Against the Documentary Canon / In Search of the Unrepresented / Take your Chance: Reassemblage! / When Materiality Sucks You in.
In the seminar we will examine which specific strategies and aesthetic concepts can be used and extended in the documentary—also beyond photography and film: monitoring and field recording, found footage and montage, blogging and vlogging, re-enactment and situative initialization, self-publishing and social media, etc. We approach the various practices experimentally with a wide variety of recording and displaying media by developing and building media test scenarios for each of the four focal points mentioned above. Therefore, bring along your cameras, digital recorders, smartphones, tripods, screens and more.
Temporarily the seminar is accompanied by Anna Frei aka DJ Fred Hystère.
