Workshop „Künstler*innen über Kunst“ ('artists on art')

Event access: Internal

In many contexts, artists are called upon to comment on, describe, explain and perhaps also market their own work. Social positioning, identity construction and the development of a certain (linguistic) habitus play a role in this process. How do artists deal with the request to talk about their art? Do they perhaps directly reject practices such as explaining, evaluating and interpreting? And what do they do instead? Does the "ephemeral nature" and "spacelessness" of music require a different language than spatial art such as painting and sculpture, which can be pointed to directly?

The interdisciplinary workshop will provide a forum for dialogue on these and other questions. The members of the Language Working Group will bring linguistic and literary research perspectives into conversation with the perspectives of artists from various fields (especially visual arts and literature).

    • Interdisciplinary workshop "language use in science and humanities"

      In this workshop we want to try a little experiment “on our own” and compare scientific texts from different subjects to see how they use language to present scientific results. We are not concerned with an exact linguistic description of individual phenomena, but rather with our spontaneous impressions: How do texts from other disciplines affect us, which stylistic features surprise or irritate us, what seems familiar to us? What linguistic means do the articles use to present their problem/question? What is considered as 'fact' in each case? How is the argumentation made?
