Artistic practice has gone through significant changes in the last century. Today, the arts articulate themselves less through mastering skills, moving more towards a practice of reviewing and rewriting history as a way to reflect on todays societies through artistic expression and their means. As with the knowledge produced by scientists, artist contribute to our understanding of the complexities of an ever changing world. Developing their own methodologies and language artist contribute in a different but nevertheless substantial way to the global production of knowledge. This presentation will introduce a range of recent examples of artists whose projects invest in transdisciplinary research and collaboration.
Ute Meta Bauer participates in ‘Encounter’, a lecture series which forms part of a large artistic endeavour called ‘Conscious Realities’, initiated and organized by San Art in partnership with Prince Claus Fund.
