Short description

Research 3 will focus on the discourse on the relationship between the arts and society.

Learning outcomes (list)

(Re)defines, defends and if necessary challenge their role as an artist in society
Stimulates a societal dialogue through the embodied artistic practice
Develops a refined thinking about the possible reciprocal relations between performative and participatory output and society
Reflects, develops, communicates and documents in an articulated form upon embodied artistic practice in relation to society

Course content

The student will reflect upon the exchange of their developing artistic practice in dialogue with the artistic field and/or with society. They will continue to reflect and challenge their research question as a result of the dialogues that will have taken place with teacher and peers during the intensives, as well as with the fields outside the course during the times in between. Their process will be documented in their portfolio.
The portfolio continues to be the container to reflect, develop, communicate and document in an articulated form upon embodied artistic practice in relation to the relevant fields (e.g. professional or societal).

Research 3 will also review materials from the symposium and students will be encouraged to reflect on the perspective of this topic in relation to their own research question. Additionally, the students will be invited to brainstorm about possibilities for curating the Master Project festival in relation to the symposium, embracing both artistic as well as logistic awareness.
