How do theory and art practice relate in texts, models and sketches?

Jenni Tischer
Arts and Society, Art and Knowledge Transfer
2023S, scientific seminar (SEW), 4.0 ECTS, 2.0 semester hours, course number S04592

Description

By means of self-made models (drawing, object, moving image ...) in dialogue with topic-specific text reading, we will investigate the relationship between theory and art in the seminar. In doing so, we understand models in the sciences and arts not as mere visualizations in the service of simplified representations of complex abstract contexts, but rather as part of gaining knowledge in the process of thinking and acting. Diagrams can promote these processes and make information accessible and readable that would otherwise not be visible; at the same time, details can be lost in favor of formalized visual languages. In her book " Materialität der Diagramme," art historian Susanne Leeb explores how abstract connections and relationships are understood as material ones that produce concrete effects.

In cooperation with the Angewandte University Library, we will show the resulting works from the seminar at the Angewandte Festival in the library's display cases.
