Artistic Strategies in Public Space

Arts and Society, Cross-Disciplinary Strategies
2019S, Artistic Practice and Theoretical Reflecion (KPR), 2.0 semester hours, course number S02631


The course offers the extended continuation of our work in the winter semester, in which we dealt with the content development of artistic ideas and their visual implementation of representative concept documents.

Based on the common topic "Migration & Movement", the developed concepts will now be realized during a multi-day workshop as contributions to a concrete common art project in public space.

Our focus is on the experimental approach to the conditions and possibilities of public space and the resulting experiences, strategies and techniques.
Both individual and collective ideas can be treated.

The working title of the project, which will take place this May on the Vienna Danube Canal, is "ALIEN INVASION".
