Lecture series by +dimensions reserach group at the weißensee kunsthochschule berlin SoSe 2022

How are artistic, design, performative and scientific research entangled? At what point is research artistic or shape-giving? And aren't art and design always a form of research?

In the summer semester of 2022, we invite three artists/theorists/designers to reflect on the interconnections between research and aesthetic practice from their different perspectives and to explore different methods and approaches with us.

About +dimensions dialogues

The newly established research project "+dimensions" at the weißensee kunsthochschule berlin explores new teaching formats and learning spaces in art and design, interweaving the analog and the digital. Through interdisciplinary, experimental, and critical research-collaboration we develop new formats and hybrid strategies under an intersectional lens. Every semester the +dimensions team invites all members of the college to a lecture series with a different focus. Since artistic-creative research is at the core of our approach, for the Sommer semester 2022 we invite artists/theorists/researchers/practicioners to reflect on the entanglements of research and aesthetic practice from their distinct perspectives, and to exchange ideas about different methods and approaches. The goal of our ongoing discussions is not only to gain a better understanding of the subject, but also to share multiple, institution-independent views of research in arts and design.
