UNDERSTANDING ART & RESEARCH
An exhibition project by the University of Applied Arts Vienna
A multi-layered open-ended documentation project (publication – film – exhibition) providing insights into current projects of Art & Research at the University of Applied Arts Vienna about transforming understanding, understanding transformation and the development of the relations beyond.
Curated by Gerald Bast, Alexander Damianisch, Barbara Putz-Plecko.
Based on projects with a focal point on artistic research activities, the Angewandte offers an overview of possible positions and illuminates current research perspectives.
Together we understand research without topical limits — focusing on artistic methods — as a font of vivid examples that can give rise to an inviting milieu of challenge and exchange. A working environment that avoids limits and fosters curiosity heightens achievement. This understanding flows into all areas of activity, including science and art, design and architecture. The transformation of society must constantly be considered anew.
