Summer 2020
Digitales Arbeiten 1 und 2

Artistic Practice: digital formats 1

The introductory seminar teaches media-specific basics such as data compression, file formats, recording media etc. as well as the handling of the equipment of the institute. There will be a camera workshop and introductions in audio and video editing (especially Adobe programs).

Based on my own practice, the focus is on audiovisual media, but the individual projects are freely selectable in terms of form and content. The teached basics should lead to own artistic projects and give the possibility to try out digital formats. Which tools, formats and methods do I choose and how do these affect the work?

The goal is a basic knowledge of digital processes and tools, the ability to use them for the own practice and to locate oneselves work within current discourses.

Assessment: Active participation, experimental exercises, group and one-to-one interviews


Artistic Practice: digital formats 2

The second part focuses on the conceptualization and realization of an artistic project. I recommend to visit both exercises together (ie in the same semester, so that basic knowledge can be coupled to individual working approaches. If there is already a mature concept or an advanced project, it is also possible to register for the second exercise only.

Assessment: Active participation, group and one-to-one interviews, presentation of the project
