Students posses and overview of modern theory of art, systematics and methodology.

The Real and the Art

Whilst science stands for the research of the so-called real, art operates – at least in a traditional understanding – in the field of the symbolic and imaginary: the spheres of facts and fictions seem to be seperated hermetically.

During the last years, biological organisms, methods originating from sciences and „real“ data streams are increasingly becoming material for art. Independetly of the tendencies towards a new realism in philiosophy, questions about a new realism in art can be posed: How do the new correspondences between art and science, fact and fiction design themselves in the current art production? Which conceptual and narrative aesthetics and poetics result from it?

Continuous assessment based on regular written and/or oral contribution by participants.

Continuous assessment and compulsory attendance.

Will be discussed in the first lesson.
