WORK OUT #3: Interference Practice

Art & Science

What is an entity? In the tradition of Aristotelian classification systems, it is mainly defined by its characteristics: a star system by its extent and parts, a muscle by its shape and function, a personality by its substructure.
Monica LoCascio, Zsuzsa Rózsavölgyi, and Laura Stoll approach the question of entity differently: through interrelatedness, repetition, and process they explore the continuity that emerges from the interference of different practices instead of the increasingly hollow claim of object ontology.

WORK OUT #1–3: A presentation of three group-shows on three different evenings by the first year students of the Art & Science department of the University of Applied Arts Vienna

WORK OUT, an analogy to both physical activity as well as the process of problem solving, is the culmination of our first year of studies. Much like a science-oriented laboratory, the studios of the Art & Science department are a place where different narratives and visualization strategies are explored. Impacted by diverse discourses reaching from astronomy to medicine, critical studies to logic, the shows feature the diverse artistic practices of painting, drawing, building and performing in relationship to scientific inquiry.

The series starts with the subjective gaze inside, continues with experiments about the objective true–false dichotomy, and ends with practices negotiating and building intersubjective truths. We invite those outside of our subjective circle to join us, as we put our work out.
