What is an artistic intervention? What does "participation" mean? What does context mean? How do artistic practices that engage in social criticism relate to "artistic autonomy"? What frameworks determine these projects and how can they intervene in social processes?

This introductory seminar and workshop will present relevant examples of art projects and artistic practices since the 1970s and link them to selected texts of art discourse. Interventionist and participatory practices have gained increasing significance, especially for discussing what role art can have in society and how it can engage in societal issues. It is therefore all the more important to acquire the same differentiated knowledge here as in traditional branches of art (painting, sculpture).
