Description

"What critical artistic research promises is a disturbance: critical artistic research wants to tear holes in the matrix of understanding, create irritating connections and separate conventional seams. [...] Critical artistic research is [...] most likely to be grasped as methodological disobedience, as a kind of radical refusal of the principles of the modern, positivist research ethos, which seeks to establish research as a reason-guided and systematic search for knowledge." (own translation of Anette Baldauf/Ana Hoffner, "Methodological Disruption," in Artistic Research. A Handbook, p. 91)  

Based on this idea of methodological disobedience, the seminar is devoted to counter-forms of classical research. The production of art, according to the resulting demand, should not take place in an objective and generally comprehensible, orderly as well as rationally founded manner, but should be expanded and opened in the direction of non-understanding, non-justification, and non-disclosure, etc. The desired result does not satisfy the requirements of classical research. The intended result satisfies its own criteria.

As a maxim of art creation, the course thus focuses on its inherent lawfulness, which is simulated and quasi-practically tested in the course of the semester in concrete exhibition scenarios. In the process, basic elements and characteristics of a methodical procedure will be presented and - in critical distance to it - comprehended.
