Artistic, Architectural and Political-Economic Performance

23.11.2023 | 09:30 — 20:00
Mönchsberg Auditorium

The conference will take up reflections from the volume Notions of Temporalities in Artistic Practice, published in summer 2022, and discuss the associated question of ideas of productivity: What ideas of productivity underlie concepts of time? How do these notions influence the formation of networks of relationships and positions as well as aesthetic and conceptual practices?

The volume Notions of Temporalities in Artistic Practice was published by Degruyter in summer 2022. The contributions to this publication deal with concepts of time and temporality in the context of historical and contemporary artistic positions. The pursuit of the situational, the processual and the current, as well as reflections on anachronistic practices, questions of community building and the ephemeral nature of sound are the central themes of the volume. The conference Artistic, Architectural, and Political-Economic Performance in the Interplay of Productivity and Temporality aims to take up these considerations and discuss the associated question of ideas of productivity.

These questions will be negotiated from a transdisciplinary perspective. The investigation of the interrelations between artistic form, political-economic ideas and spatial conditions is intended to open up the field for the imaginative potential of deconstruction and the development of a critical-reflexive position on the question of productivity.
