Artistic Strategies

Arts and Society, Cross-Disciplinary Strategies
2018W, Artistic Practice and Theoretical Reflecion (KPR), 1.0 semester hours, course number S02526



In recent years, biological organisms, methods from the sciences and "real" processes are increasingly becoming the material of art. Regardless of tendencies of a new realism in philosophy, questions arise about a new realism in art: how do the new correspondences between art and science, fact and fiction, construct themselves in contemporary art production? Which conceptual and narrative aesthetics and poetics result from this?

On the basis of selected projects, the course discusses contemporary art in the context of social and technological developments.
