Content (valid 01.08.2018-31.07.2020): 

An intensive workshop for doctoral students (open for MA students interested in doctoral studies) working on artistic or practice-based doctorate. Each participant in the doctoral workshop presents their own work and a particular question or issue surrounding its development in order to workshop with each other and receive feedback. Through varying themes students discuss and develop their own research project in relation to the following questions: What is artistic research or research with and through art? How is it different to the 'normal' practice of an artist/designer/filmmaker? How does theorising within the framework of artistic research differ from traditional academic research? How, through thinking, making and doing (as thinking-making), are you developing and furthering the field(s) of your research? How does the artistic research framework challenge the binary epistemologies of knowing vs. experiencing, or conceptualising vs. making. How does the chosen theoretical framework in each participant's work challenge or illuminate the foundations, structure and actions of their practice?

Details on the course content (applies in this implementation): 

workshop explores the intra-action within making art and conceptualizing it as
well as writing inside it. The dichotomy between theory and praxis is put into
the move and questioned in various ways in the rehearsals that combine bodily
work, writing, and multisensory awareness. The materiality of the different art
forms guide the exploration. The aim of the workshop is to gain
bodily-epistemological tools for the artistic work and research, and to
understand the historicity of the theory/praxis split in its’ various contexts.
