University of Applied Arts Vienna 2–7 October 2016 Department Sculpture and Space in collaboration with the department Art History and the research project “A matter of historicity” Funded by WWTF within the program Social Sciences and Humanities of the City of Vienna
The autumn school offers input on the 3s – the spatial, the social, and the sensorium – with reference to individual project case studies, from the lecturers’ as well as from the participants’ side. Working with case studies provides an in-depth-insight into individual projects, while at the same time allowing to compare these projects in terms of their thematic focus, their research questions, their theoretical references, and their methodological approaches. Sharing and responding takes place in the form of lectures and presentations in the plenum on the one side, and in small group workshops and one-to-one tuition on the other side. A combination of collective and individual learning will help participants to further their individual projects, as it will provide them with general insights into the interdisciplinary fields targeted in the lectures and workshops.
Artists and researchers working in field of art, architecture, art history, anthropology, sociology, media theory, and cultural studies etc. who are eager to explore the interdependence of the spatial, the social, and the sensorium are cordially invited to apply for participation.
