On research was a 2-day symposium at Haus der Kulturen der Welt, Berlin, on possible modes of ‘artistic research’. In its presentation format, the symposium has also been the showcase of a very effective ‘engaging tactic’, namely of the performance lecture.
From the symposium website:
“The debates about new models in academia, art and education have drawn additional attention to the topic of “artistic research”. What academic methods do artists use and what artistic methods do academics use?
Complementing the discussion, Rabih Mroué and Hito Steyerl focus on the (im)probability of events in the research field of mathematics; Ina Wutdke and Dieter Lesage devote themselves to gentrification debates in the context of academic studies; Xavier Le Roy explains how the academic that he once was became an artist.”
