Inhalt Thought in the Act - Artistic Research Processes

This course proposes the device of “research-creation”, a novel format which experimentally brings together positions from the arts and from research. In the past two decades, several institutions have created working situations, in which artistic practices and research practices are brought into conversation, like for instance the SenseLab in Montréal (CAN), the Sensory Ethnography Laboratory in Harvard (US), the Eye & Mind Lab in Aarhus (DK) and the FSP-T at the Zurich University of Arts.

We will engage with the questions and explorations proposed by Brian Massumi and Erin Manning in their 2014 book Thought in the Act, and we shall do so practically, by simulating a lab-like working and learning situation. The course takes place every second week, so that every session provides enough time to, firstly, discuss and collaboratively think through our own readings, and secondly, to critically confront our ideas with an artist position, either presented by invited guests or through video material that bridges the aesthetic and political domains.

The course opens up avenues into research at the intersection between power, perception and creativity, and there will be ample space to discuss how participants may develop and adopt creative-artistic processes as part of their own research. Students who are already involved in a research process are welcome to reflect their own approaches in dialogue with the group and the discussed examples. Emphasis is therefore given to practical exercises and to concrete challenges in the process of “research-creation”. However, there is no need to be already involved in a research process in order to be part of this novel learning format.
