In the course central terms and concepts of the research field of inter- and transcultural analyses will be communicated and on the basis of artistic and cultural projects the theoretical positions will be linked up with examples of practical experience. The aim is a critical reflection of the thematic field as well as the development of an individual standpoint.

What does „culture“ mean? And what do„interculturality“ and „transculturality“ mean? Are we living in a „migration society“ or in a „post-migration“ society? What do we perceive as „our own self“ and what as „other/foreign/unknown“? Where and how do the Self and the Other meet? And which questions arise in this context regarding interrelations between everyday experience, arts, poetics and science?

The lecture will start by clarifying central terms and introducing central topic related concepts of cultural science (especially of postcolonial studies and ethnology). The theoretical introduction will be followed by an explorative approach to the practice field of art mediation. We will analyse artistic and cultural projects which address questions of representation and deconstruction of the Self and the Other and attend the “MY Sound of Music” Musicfilm-festival (in a day excursion to Salzburg) to negotiate questions of inter- and transcultural analyses in the interplay of theory and practice.

The contents of the course will be acquired through lectures as well as discussions with the students, through analysis of texts, presentations of artistic and cultural projects and a one-day-excursion.

To pass the course students have to hand in written reflections (on texts and practice-examples; 1-1,5 pages) and do short oral presentations. Also, they have to write a short paper (4-5 pages) at the end of the semester. Active participation in the classes is also taken into account for the assessment.
