HTEK03221U  Site Specificity

Volume 2015/2016
Content

Site Specificity refers to an artistic approach that makes place a form of co-creator in works of art. In this course we will depart from a look into the historical background of site specificity in a wider artistic context and move on to explore how the approach has been developed in various performative genres. In focusing on the triadic relationship between place, artist(s) and audience/spectators, the theoretical readings will be combined with practical tasks in order to substantiate our conceptual understanding in an embodied manner. Adding to this we will look at a case material involving works that we attend together as well as performances accessed through documentation and/or secondary sources. The course will sharpen the theoretical understanding and analytical competences of students with an interest in relational dimensions of contemporary works of art.
