Symposium ``Knowing in Performing``

Artistic research as it has emerged and evolved over the last three decades is related to an increasing interest in epistemological questions as well as an interrogation of how artistic practices constitutively support and instigate processes of knowledge creation. Art is thus being looked at both as an object and a medium of research, becoming part of a general discourse on knowledge regimes and research models.

The symposium investigated this dynamic, ever-renewing field of interrelations with a special focus on the performing arts. Highlighting the issue of various implementation models in curricula and study programmes in higher arts education, it critically analysed international institutional policies and facilitated an open debate on how to integrate current practices and discourses into future teaching and research structures.

PEEK Project ``Quo Vadis Teufelsgeiger``

The arts-based-research project „Quo vadis, Teufelsgeiger?“ (QvT) at mdw investigated over two years the effect of one’s own sound (improvisation) and own musical language  (idiolectic) on the development of classical musicians.

It was the first artistic research project at mdw, supported by FWF / PEEK.
