As the public closing event of the Artistic Research Lab in the artistic doctoral programme, sixteen mdw students will present audiovisual contributions from their current artistic research projects. The spectrum ranges from new and sometimes transcultural forms of composition and interpretation to experimental approaches to creation, curating, media art, film and theatre to historically informed performance practice and innovative turntablism.
