Research Day HGK: The practice of research practice

The Research Day HGK on December 2, 2022, will analyze the specificity and diversity of practice-based methods and their impact on our comprehension of doing research and creating knowledge within the institution of Applied Sciences and Art.

Which scientific and non-scientific methods do artists and designers work with? How can they generate specific forms of knowledge that, although academically institutionalized, transgress and challenge purely academic forms?

These questions will be addressed at the Research Day HGK on December 2, 2022. After our director Prof. Dr. Claudia Perren’s welcome, followed by a short introduction to the topic by Dr. Yvonne Volkart, head of research at Institute Art Gender Nature (IAGN), there will be a keynote by artist, activist, and professor at the Department of Photography at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago Claire Pentecost.

During her talk, Prof. Pentecost will address her multiple ways of doing political engaged artistic research, in and out of the institution. Her keynote will be followed by a discussion moderated by Dr. Filipa Ramos, lecturer IAGN and curator.

A poster session will be held where participants can learn more about the ongoing research projects at HGK, as well as to network and talk one-on-one with other researchers about their work. Following the poster session, the concept of methods, strategies, skills, and possibilities of practice based academic research in Art and Design will be discussed in parallel roundtable discussions.

If you want to participate with a poster please send an email until November 18, 2022, to anVsaWEubWVuc2NoQGZobncuY2g=. Attendance for the keynote and discussion is without registration. For those interested in joining the workshop, please register until November 25, 2022, to anVsaWEubWVuc2NoQGZobncuY2g=
