From November 19, 2018, the University of Applied Arts Vienna will present
various approaches to its research under the title UNDERSTANDING – ART & RESEARCH in Singapore. In cooperation with the
renowned School of Art, Design and Media (ADM), Nanyang Technological University Singapore (NTU), exemplary research and teaching
will be on display.
It is about understanding possibilities of research of and through
art in new ways, about understanding as the very driving force of inquiry, artistic and scientific activity. The desire and
claim to contribute to the transformation of society can be viewed, examined, sensed, discussed and experienced through examples
from research and teaching, science and art, design and architecture.
15 different examples of artistic research
practice are presented, always challenging the established perspective. As a further artistic position, a work by Niki Passath
will be presented in Singapore. In addition, there is the work of the Fulldome Laboratory and the Science Visualization Lab.
The exhibition UNDERSTANDING – ART & RESEARCH, curated by Gerald Bast, Alexander Damianisch and Barbara Putz-Plecko,
was newly adapted and designed after a first station in April 2018 in New Zealand (Dunedin School of Art).
