METHODS of artistic research

epistēmē - Theoretical sciences and basic researching art 

1st Structural Coupling, Maturana, Varela (1984)

2nd Gaya Scienzia, Nietzsche (1882)

In the seminar on methods of artistic research, international and own artistic works are analyzed with regard to the methods of artistic research applied in them. New methods of artistic research are defined on the basis of works and examples of current research projects in Cultural Sciences and Arts. The joint analysis of their own work opens up new forms and approaches to understanding art as research. Particular attention is paid to art through media and the significance of technological objects - and their historical and contemporary demands in society.
