Artistic Strategies

Jens Hauser

The course provides both a large scope of contemporary practices that use biomedia and examines the underpinning philosophical and esthetical concepts. It also loops this art of staging a/liveness back to historical paradigms such as the indexicality of imprints, animation and simulacrum, automata as early ‘artificial life’, as well as to the concept of ‘mirco-performativity.’ Artistic forgery of DNA fingerprints,… 2018W, Künstlerische Praxis und theoretische Reflexion

Artistic Strategies

Gerald Nestler

The course offers approaches to artistic strategies and practices from a postdisciplinary perspective. The term postdisciplinary states that art is not a discipline as such, but to the advantage of difference and multiplicity a certain totality that opens to other forms of research and practice; hence, art is often the site where new forms of thinking and making find their… 2018W, Künstlerische Praxis und theoretische Reflexion

Artistic Strategies

Thomas Feuerstein

REAL ART In recent years, biological organisms, methods from the sciences and "real" processes are increasingly becoming the material of art. Regardless of tendencies of a new realism in philosophy, questions arise about a new realism in art: how do the new correspondences between art and science, fact and fiction, construct themselves in contemporary art production? Which conceptual and narrative… 2018W, Künstlerische Praxis und theoretische Reflexion

Basics of Scientific Writing

David Campbell

This course brings together scientific writing, academic publishing, research in the sciences and artistic research, also in reference to interdisciplinarity and transdisciplinarity. The focus is on "basics of scientific writing" (writing and publishing in the sciences). Two types of writing are serving as "role models": the article in the peer-reviewed journal and the book (monograph and edited book). This will… 2018W, Vorlesungen

Cross-Disciplinary Capabilities

Tanja Gesell

In each of the semesters 2 to 7, a workshop regarding cross-disciplinary capabilities is to be completed. In this workshop, students apply methods for creating interdisciplinary connections and explore potentials of interdisciplinary linkages.The experiences gained in these workshops are to be documented in the studies portfolio (programme-related reflection). They form the basis for the concluding bachelor thesis. In our first… 2018W, Workshop

Global Challenges: Automation and Digitalization

Elisabeth Oberzaucher

The biological foundations of human perception, cognition and behavior have been shaped by evolutionary constraints and therefore a mismatch between evolved mechanisms and challenges of modern technology can be observed. This lecture attempts to identifiy areas of evolutionary mismatch and discuss how knowledge about the biological foundations of human behavior and cognition can help to design in a way that… 2018W, Vorlesung und Diskussion

Introduction to Communication and Cooperation Strategies

Harald Katzmair

In a world of massive information overflow and oversaturated human attention capacities the design of communication and cooperation strategies rely on a deep understanding of network dynamics and general knowledge of the sometimes erratic behavior of complex systems, the basic laws of creating resonance and influencing the human mind as well as knowledge about principles of framing and storytelling. Goal… 2018W, Vorlesung und Übungen
