The theory and practice of artistic research are concerned with specific ways to approach art, science and epistemic things. Their goals are sometimes written fictitiously, presented in playful formats and made public in processes of exchange. The methods of artistic research comprise – in a structural coupling – contradictions, a joyful science and an associative memory play. Ludic agency is caused by ongoing psychophysical soirées.
In this playful format series Ludic Method is presented in a coupling of public lectures and performative play. We embrace gaya sciencia and cognitive settings — in several detours, sometimes from Cyberfeminsm to Trans Activism and back to the experience made in a play with your own bodily consciousness - as exemplified on this third Ludic Soiree evening at Prater Rustenschacheralle 2-4 - on the 20th November 7 pm.
Ludic Method Soirées. Activist research practice lecture series in playful formats.
Hosted by Prof. Margarete Jahrmann, artistic PhD program, University of Applied Arts Vienna
