On the occasion of the exhibition INHABITING basis the online conference "Artistic Knowledge and the Sonic" features discussions between INHABIT’s resident artists and internationally recognized scholars representing a range of disciplinary perspectives. Together with Holger Schulze (musicologist, University of Copenhagen, Denmark), Marie-France Rafael (art historian, Zürcher Hochschule der Künste, Switzerland), and Marie Thompson (sound researcher, Open University, UK), the artists will discuss their respective practices and approaches along with more theoretical and field-related questions. How do their works—in the form of installations, performances, sculptures, and drawings—navigate between art and science? These and other questions will serve as entry points for this exploration on the possibilities of artistic knowledge. For the final discussion moderated by Eike Walkenhorst and Christian Grüny, neuroscientist Ed Vessel (MPI for empirical aesthetics, Frankfurt) will join the participants.
The conference will be recorded.
