BEPX - Staging Artistic Research

A workshop by Stefan Lutschinger,

The term artistic research has many meanings, connotations and implications and is characterized by its continuous search for a current and convincing definition. It is “a search that is not problematic in itself but, on the contrary, the plain necessity of a fruitful, self-reflective and meaningful setup” (Hannula 2005). At the same time as providing the researcher with intellectual challenges, the process of artistic research can also be an aesthetic experience. It not only participates in the foundational groundwork of the theoretical basis of the field or the development of professional practices, knowledge and skills but also creates thereby new ways of artistic expression. Staging artistic research puts this very type of aesthetic experience itself on display. BEPX (russ. “above”) therefore interweaves a diversity of points of view and plays among three discourses: performativity, labour and context.

In my workshop I will discuss my conceptual basis and present our project outline.
