Artistic research – development and opening up of the arts – scientific research: The productive power of a field of tension

"After many years of practice in artistic research in Austria (and Europe) there should be no further need for clarification of what distinguishes artistic from scientific research, and how the relationship to the concept of the “development and opening up of the arts” is to be produced. This lecture will seek to give an insight into what artistic research achieves, what research contexts are exclusively to be placed in the framework of artistic research and to outline where the boundaries (in research design and methodology) open up in this field." Andrea B. Braidt



"Based on my own work, my lecture will present specific examples of the direction in which artistic research is going and what it may look like. Among other things it will present the research project ATLAS OF ARCADIAS (carried out together with Meike S. Gleim), which translates Walter Benjamin’s Passagenwerk in two ways: on the one hand the motifs of Passagenwerk, which was laid out as the history of the 19th century, will be translated for the late 20th century, on the other hand Benjamin’s literary montages will be translated into image montages. The series of works on our recent past that were thus produced lay claim to be able to compete with the verbal analyses of our society and are thus a practical answer to the question of how we can research with images." Anna Artaker

Anna Artaker is an artist and currently among other things a scientific assistant at the Institute for Art and Cultural Studies at the Vienna Academy of Fine Arts. Her works have been shown internationally at numerous exhibitions, most recently for example in the New Museum in New York and in the Austrian Cultural Forum in London. In her work Artaker deals among other things with image production in the service of historiography. Specifically it concerns images that have been produced or drawn on for the portrayal of history and as a result themselves have become part of a particular historiography. “History” interests her primarily as a model for capturing reality, i.e. to the extent that it concerns a specific object on the basis of which the complex relations between reality and its portrayal can be investigated.
