2023W, artistic Seminar (SEK), 2.0 ECTS, 2.0 semester hours, course number S03144



Nikolaus Gansterer, M.A.
Artistic project work (2 hours) in combination with practices (2 hours)
The seminar will take place as a block within the framework of an excursion lasting several days at Whitsun 2024. (max. 10 persons), further preparatory meetings and individual meetings by arrangement. The course is part of the APL (Applied Performance Laboratory).

The seminar deals with translation practices of perceptual processes. We develop specific forms of notation of places and situations and their respective atmospheres in the form of artistic field research. Based on the current PEEK research project "Contingent Agencies", central methods and experimental approaches of artistic research in theory and practice will be taught. In the spirit of research-led and practice-oriented teaching, a central part of the seminar will take place in the context of a multi-day excursion (Pentecost 2024).
In the course of walking through diverse places and landscapes, we will observe the interactions of perception between the so-called “outside” and “inside”. How can the very specific of a place and its atmosphere be recorded?

Through transformative transitions from idea to sign, from word to image, from trace to figure, from material to action, strategies of recording and inscribing the spatial and the physical will be experienced individually and collectively. How can the collected data, experiences and recordings be further processed, put into form and thus made communicable to others?
The goal is to open up a heightened awareness of the qualitative characteristics of being in motion in the landscape in order to explore places "seismographically" and thereby trace the idiosyncratic choreographies of sense-making, as well as to performatively expand the concept of form and material.
