2020S, scientific seminar (SEW), 4.0 ECTS, 2.0 semester hours, course number S02961



In this seminar, that is an accompanying seminar to school practice, we will work with methods of artistic research, penomen based learning, social oriented design und social engaged art on the topic of dementia. Scholars are increasingly engaged with this topic as grandparents are concerned but do not know how to handle it. 125 million people worldwide live with dementia, 10 million in Europe alone. The number of people affected increases every three seconds and will have doubled by 2050. Personal and social challenges are the result. When tasks such grocery shopping, money transactions and travelling to unknown places become difficult and people with dementia withdraw from society for fear of rejection and embarrassment, it is not only those affected who need support, but above all society must be sensitized.

This seminar is embedded in the project DEMEDARTS, funded by the Austrian Science Fund (FWF) A-609 PEEK.

Together with art & music & dance educators, artists, teachers, musicians, multimedial art therapists, authors, designers, performers we are developing the first art-based teaching concept to sensitize young people in schools, since there is no school strategy for dementia education (through art). The questions of how art and design strategies can help secondary school students to develop more empathy for people with dementia and how artistic research can affect the cross-generational well-being of people with dementia are addressed.
