Applied Visualization Cultures

Bernd Kräftner

One aim of the Art & Science master program is to introduce students to current visualization techniques that produce (scientific) images. The seminar will contextualize those practices and will discuss (among others) the following questions and issues: What are the relations between modern and historical production techniques? How does (and did) the cartographic representation of realities produce different worlds? Did… 2019S, Vorlesungen

Art & Science Interdisciplinary Theory Seminar

Bernd Kräftner

In Latour, Bruno. An Inquiry into Modes of Existence: An Anthropology of the Moderns, we read that it is much too easy for artists to take the unreality of their creations for granted and indulge in „real fakery“ in the name of the enduring rights of the imagination creativity.Latour invites us to abstain from taking fictional beings to be mere… 2018W, Seminar

Artscience practises

Valerie Deifel

In the academic year 2018/19 we would like to explore questions related to the future of work and what ‘a good life’ could mean through our ‘Artscience practises’ seminar. Currently we experience the promise of jobs as a powerful actor (whether its through the threat of cuts due to automatisation, immigration, urbanisation etc or as justification to give tax-breaks). Through… 2018W/2019S, Vorlesung und Übungen

Im Kontext: Künstlerische Produktion und ihre kulturpolitischen Bedingungen

Michael Wimmer

Gegenstand des Seminars ist das Verhältnis von künstlerischer Produktion und den kulturpolitischen Bedingungen, in denen sie stattfinden. Wir wollen im Rahmen der Lehrveranstaltung der Frage nachgehen, inwieweit kulturpolitische Akteure und ihre Maßnahmen die eigene künstlerische Arbeit (mit)bestimmen bzw. diese durch künstlerische Interventionsformen ihrerseits beeinflusst werden können. Gerade Österreich ist durch eine starke Tradition staatlicher Kulturpolitik und ihrer institutionellen Verankerung geprägt.… 2018W/2019S, Seminar

Interaktive Medien V

Patrícia Reis

In the last decades many contemporary artists have been exploring the tactile qualities of motion image as a critical response to the excess of visuality that characterizes today's visual culture. A large number of these works employs multisensory strategies of affection that call for the engagement of the spectator's body in the process of experiencing art. Those strategies were acknowledged… 2019S, Seminar

Methods and Practices of Experimental Cultures

Bernd Kräftner

Issues An "issue", as you know, is a question, a controversial topic, a matter of concern. This topic may capture the interest of various actors and therefore may become the starting point of a more or less substantial political change. In the seminar we shall explore scientific, artistic, cultural and media enactments of various issues and connect them to our… 2018W, Vorlesungen
