PUBLIC COLLOQUIUM SS 2020
In accordance with the measures taken at our university and the change to alternate.mode, the Public
Colloquium in the summer semester 2020 will also be held online via ZOOM on the basis of individual
preparations (A) and collection of specific feedback (B and C) (D). A digital form (E) will be chosen, which will
allow public streaming of the exchange.
In line with the measures and changes made regarding alternate.mode at our university the seminar will be held by appointment with the supervisor in ZOOM:
The aim of the Public Colloquium is to provide an opportunity for the PhD candidates to present the progress and current development of their research projects. The presentations serve to illustrate the continuous artistic research practice whereby development is made comprehensible through the consideration of reflexive forms of documentation and the possibility to integrate existing elements of the work.
The Public Colloquium is part of the Artistic Research PhD Programme at the Angewandte and open to interested audience.
The following binding general conditions should ensure a good process:
A) PRESENTATION: Students are asked to record a 15-20 minute presentation on the current
status of their research project on video prior to the online meeting. In order to make it
easier for external reviewers and guests to get started, this time the presentation should
be preceded by a short introduction (max. 5 min.) to the research project and the current
state of research. Finally, preliminary findings should be briefly presented. The digital
material can be uploaded via a link1.
B) INTERNAL FEEDBACK: A link to these videos will be released for viewing by all participants
in advance1. All participants should have seen all presentations by the time of the online
meeting in order to be able to give constructive feedback in a reflective discussion. In order
to intensify the reflective discussion, we ask all students to submit short written comments
and questions on presentations of their choice. Unlike the Internal Colloquium, this
feedback service is optional here. We ask all students to send their comments to zff@uniak.
ac.at at least one week before the Public Colloquium. The collected contributions will be
made available for all participants to view and should be read in addition to all
presentations until the online meeting. The comments and questions provided are
intended to facilitate the start and flow of discussion.
C) EXTERNAL FEEDBACK: For the function of external reviewers, the Center Research Focus
will invite at least two external guests from the field of artistic research, to the colloquium.
They are also asked to provide brief written feedback or questions in advance. Both will be
shared for review and preparation. Furthermore, all presenters are invited to name up to
three people who could also act as "external reviewers" in the online meeting.
Nominations should be sent in advance1 to firstname.lastname@example.org. These persons will be
requested and invited (after internal consultation of the course lecturers) for the
"extended circle of external reviewers". They will also be asked to provide brief written
feedback or questions in advance - if possible. All their contributions will also be shared for
review and preparation.
D) REFLECTIVE DISCUSSION: During the online meeting there will be room for joint reflective
discussion of the presentation and the progress of the project. First the external reviewers,
then the internal reviewers, and finally the avatar (see point E) are invited to participate. In
this discussion format, the presenters have the opportunity to react to both the written
and oral feedback and to use the discussion space according to their wishes. A maximum
of 35 minutes per candidate is allowed. A precise schedule and procedure for the online
meeting will be developed and communicated in advance1.
E) PUBLIC STREAM: The reflective discussion is streamed. For this stream, after a registration
of guests, links are sent which allow the guests to view the presentations. This will be done
about 5 days before the actual event. At the actual event, the online meeting, these guests
can use the comment function to submit questions, suggestions and comments in
moderated form. These inputs will be made by a "Guest Avatar".
