In her text "Aesthetics of Resistance? Artistic Research as Discipline and Conflict“ Hito Steyerl proposes a genealogy of artistic research which traces the origins of this discipline in the context of emancipation movements of the 20th century. According to this approach, artistic research practices emerge as a way of visualizing conflict and dissent and as an artistic approach to developing strategies of epistemic disobedience.

In this course, we will bring forward and reflect on critical responses to the colonial character of the notion of research and problematize subject/object relationships as established in social sciences and specific artistic practices.

We will focus on different answers to questions such as:

How can research practices be shaped to encompass reciprocal forms of knowledge production?

How can research be directed towards fostering emancipation and moving away from a “damage-centered” perspective (Eve Tuck)?
Working command of the english language. Willingness to explore the discussed topics through practical exercises.
The aim of the course is to introduce some of the methodological challenges that the discipline of artistic research poses by focusing on the notion of research from a decolonial perspective. We will use theoretical texts, as well as concrete examples from art history and contemporary art practices to understand the specificities and varieties of methods in artistic research. After completing the course, students will be able to identify current issues, theoretical approaches and concepts that problematize the notion of research and expand the methodological approaches to it. Participants will be encouraged to experiment with practical approaches to the discussed topics. After completing the course, students will develop a critical and self-reflective approach to their own academic and artistic practices.
