Seminar description

The Live/Art lives seminar continues to foreground, workshop, develop and critique the ongoing works and projects of the young artists and students who form the collective expression of the seminar group. The teaching blocks are both practical and discussion-based.

This is an ongoing and developmental work in establishing units of production and collective support work, as well as facilitating and sustaining individual practices. In this we continue to follow the discussion around praxis and follow ideas to presentation – both within rehearsal spaces and for public audiences. This is an organic project seeking to learn through connection and reflection on and with other participants’ work.

The seminar places the highest priority on creating collective vocabularies and opportunities with visits to cultural events – theatre shows, performance events, concerts, exhibitions – with the radical potential of popular culture and the live moment at the heart of the seminar as a joint process of learning and reflecting.

We are thankful that the KHM Bibliothek supports this project with books and dvds which inspire and amplify some of the themes that underlie the central themes of the seminar. These include historical works, biography, theory, anti-racist, feminist and queer texts centred on struggle and social transformation, plays, poetry and novels.
