2020S, Vorlesung und Übungen (VU), 2.0 ECTS, 2.0 semester hours, course number S03311

Description

What is a place? What are non-places, other places, heterotopias, gaps? In a world of virtual spaces and social media bubbles, of VR and AR, the spatial constraints of the body are still a fact. The revolutionary moments of the past decade have demonstrated that bodies need to gather, they need coordinates and designated surfaces of “a” place.

This phenomenological view is the starting point for two things: the collaborative reading of texts related to site-specificity. Yet, at the same time, this seminar is also about your own constitution in relation to the place and space of artistic production. From which place do we read (we, the participants of the course, tied together in terms of time and space), do we write, do we become artistically active?

These questions will be explored in reading texts and by discussing examples of artistic practice (field trips!). Answers will be given in writing. Creative approaches are explicitly encouraged, exchange is a must.

Examination Modalities

Regular participation and the willingness to actively deal with texts and questions are required. Two written inputs are intended to promote different forms of exchange, the collaborative search for possible forms of expression is encouraged.

Comments

The course will be held in either German or English according to the requirements of the participants.
