The world is worlding, but who is listening?

Teacher: Diana Tørsløv / Jakob Eriksen

When the world is worlding, we humans are participants in an overwhelmingly complex ecosystem where everything always touches and is touched, creates and is created. How can such interfaces and processes and the ever-mutual influence of the world be explored artistically through sound and music?Unlike traditional academic research with its focus on logical, rational thinking, artistic research has less fixed frameworks for what can be defined as knowledge and for how to reach new epistemological insights. With a particular focus on themes such as “the role of the human in the world”, “reevaluation of the contradiction between nature and culture” and “the world without us”, the purpose of this course is to inspire critical thinking in the form of artistic research: What knowledge can we generate from artistic research? What can sound do as an artistic medium in artistic research? Throughout the course, the students will work with texts, theories and artworks in order to stimulate their artistic and musical practice.
