|Lernziele / Kompetenzen
|To introduce the participants to issues, potentials and perspectives of artistic research
To get familiar with various conceptions of artistic research based on insights into research projects by the PhD-candidates
To be able to critically interrogate what an art-based research PhD can potentially be
To achieve an awareness of methodologies, interdisciplinary approaches and what it concretely means to undertake a research project, as well as to write a research proposal and apply for funding
|The seminar and workshop creates a dynamic platform for an insight and exchange of research related knowledge. PhD group members will share experiences with their own research projects and will also give an introduction to different methods and methodologies of contemporary artistic research.
1st part: short introduction to the history of artistic research and to selected international good practice examples, as well as a research-walk to visit different research institutes at the ZHdK.
2nd part: practice based workshop aiming to discuss and test different artistic research methods.
The discussion will focus on the difference between art and artistic research by asking the possible societal need for artistic research. Further we will discuss the interdisciplinary aspect, looking at concrete artistic research processes and try to grasp the concept of the artefact as the outcome of artistic research.
Four PhD-projects will be presented and discussed more in detail:
Moving in and through different landscapes. Nomadic strategies to create installations/landscapes by Viviana Gonzalez
Institutionen als Kunst – Kunst als Institution. Künstlerische Recherchen und performative Transformationen by Bernhard Herbordt & Melanie Mohren
