Information

Ziele, Inhalte und Methode der Lehrveranstaltung

This course focuses on the broad range of artistic manifestations that have come to be associated with Performance and Performativity and seeks to position them within the multiple, uneven, and increasingly trans-disciplinary histories of modernism. Beginning with the so-called “dissolution of the art object” into an expanded field of systems, structures, and spaces in the 1960s – including photography, publications, architecture, analog technologies and digital media -- we will examine how artistic practitioners have consistently re-conceptualized performance and performativity. Specifically, we will analyze and historicize the role of the body and constitutive power of language -- in relation to advanced capitalism within a global context.

Some questions that will guide our study: (1) Can we theorize the body of the artist and public as potential sites for the production of new subjectivities and political realities? (2) How have language-based practices produced new articulations of subjectivity in relation to specific material conditions?

Mindestanforderungen und Beurteilungsmaßstab

The aims of the course are to 1) familiarize students with the practices, histories, and theories of Performance and Performativity; 2) engage with the issues raised by these practices along multidisciplinary pathways, including urban geography, sociology, cultural studies, feminist criticism, postcolonial theories, and political philosophy; 3) introduce students to methods, models, and theories for the critical analysis of contemporary art.

Prüfungsstoff

This is a conceptually and theoretically driven seminar that approaches the study of contemporary art as an expanded and entwined constellation of representational artifacts, discursive objects, and material practices. Within this multidisciplinary constellation, we will be attentive to the ways in which artistic production relates and responds to forces, techniques, and effects of power and is implicated in the constitution of new subjectivities.
Specific pedagogical methods include: Close textual and visual analysis; class discussions, oral and written components, field trips.

Literatur

A bibliography will be distributed at the initial session.
