A multi-layered open-ended documentation project (publication – film – exhibition) providing insights
into current projects of Art & Research at the University of Applied Arts Vienna about transforming understanding, understanding
transformation and the development of the relations beyond.
Curated by Gerald Bast, Alexander Damianisch, Barbara Putz-Plecko.
Based on projects with a focal point on artistic research activities, the Angewandte offers an overview
of possible positions and illuminates current research perspectives.
Together we understand research without
topical limits — focusing on artistic methods — as a font of vivid examples that can give rise to an inviting milieu of challenge
and exchange. A working environment that avoids limits and fosters curiosity heightens achievement. This understanding flows
into all areas of activity, including science and art, design and architecture. The transformation of society must constantly
be considered anew.
- different formats of artistic practice, challenging and reshaping
our perspectives of understanding,
- collective endeavours that explicitly open / direct artistic practice towards the
development of new ways of understanding and cognising specific themes and topics.
- We further take “research-based
teaching” (Humboldt) to its core meaning as the notion of research-based teaching should be expanded by and grounded in art,
making it art-research-based teaching.
The exhibition’s first international location is at the Angewandte’s cooperation
partner Dunedin School of Art
