    The plenary is part of the preparation for the Master thesis. Be advised that attendance is mandatory. Due to the current situation, some students may consider not completing the MA thesis plus colloquium by the end of the term and extend their studies/thesis process. Normally the plenary takes place once a year only, thus it is best to take the seminar following (or rather, as you are in the process of concluding) the Master Project module and not wait - unless you have plans to take a hiatus due to Corona. If so, please let me know. Everyone else, please sign up and we will meet on Monday 12th of April for our first session.

  • Introduction to Digital Media
    Seminar
    Kurs Nr.: DM.M-MA-1
    Semester: WS 2021/22

    IDM (Introduction to Digital Media) in the Winter term 21/22 will be a series of online lectures and on-site discussions, revolving around the specific perspectives of the different fields within digital media, represented by HfK and Uni Bremen faculty members. The speakers discuss their research area in digital media and present their version of the scope, issues, problems, and challenges connected to digital media, both as a field of research and practice and a program of studies. However, this will not lead to one unified vision of the Digital Media program or digital media at large. Instead, we hope that our format will show the impressive depth and breadth of Digital Media Bremen as a research program in art and sciences and digital media more generally. We want to welcome, introduce, motivate, and excite our new students. There will be a total of eight online lecture-presentations on MS Teams (accessable under: [url]http://dm-hb.de/idmtalk/[/url] open to all members of HfK and Uni Bremen), a short question and answer session followed by online presentations by the students (open only to course participants), who will introduce themselves individually (background, previous work, goals, interests) to get to know each other. In the week following the two-week online lectures, we will meet in small groups for discussion on-site at HfK and online on MS Teams to accommodate students who are not in Bremen (due to visa issues, etc.). There will be some writing assigments, for the groups and individually.
  • Research-Creation, Art Writing, and the Making of Podcasts (Special Topic in Digital Media / Interdis. LV)
    Seminar
    Kurs Nr.: DM.M-MA-2
    Semester: WS 2021/22

    This course is for students interested in »transforming/expanding« their art research project (DM, ID, Fine Arts, Music) into a podcast format. For instance, if you are a DM Master student concluding your Master Project or working on your Thesis, you can further explore your ongoing work through podcasting; the same goes for students from the other programs (ID, Fine Arts, Music) who have been working on a specific project or seek a different type of and approach to an art- or design-based project through podcasting as a new means, form, and outlet within the sonic (podcast) realm. For obvious reasons, sound, sound recording, perhaps music production, and the organization of sound will play a significant role. Aside from the required technical competence, the course will focus on methods that want to push the limit of the medium. This includes reading and discussing relevant theory, art writing, or writing for (your) podcasting, creating »vacuoles of noncommunication« through sounding out research-creation, seeking experimental new forms of inquiry and forms of expression specific to the student’s practice and interest. The podcasts will be released (or presented live, depending) on S&RC (sound&researchcreation, https://www.mixcloud.com/soundstudies).

    Kolloquium

  • SOUND AND RESEARCH-CREATION (Special Topics in Digital Media/Media Design)
    Seminar
    Kurs Nr.: DM.M-MA-2/M-MT
    Semester: SS 2022

    This course is designed for students interested in research methods for sound and research-creation (also called art-led, art-based research, or artistic research). The focus is on transposing aspects of an existing project or work in progress into a sonic paradigm seeking to consider:??– aesthetic considerations of sound and research, i.e., what emerges from communication and results through sound?– fabulation as a means of inquiry, i.e., possibly use writing as a narrative device?– how to problematize, i.e., employ practice to think through theory, utilize practice to produce theory, deploy practice to critique theory. The outcome will take the form of an experimental short-format podcast published on the Mixcloud channel S&RC. To summarize: Learn to ‘think through sound and research’ to create a podcast that uses sound and theory as a means of reflection and self-reflexivity on your own emerging art/design practice. Regardless of the nature of your work (and output), the potential lies in connecting practice and theory, articulating your thoughts, discovering new aspects in and through your work, and engaging with emerging insights.

Vita

Dr. Petra Klusmeyer ist seit den 1990er Jahren als Kunstpraktikerin tätig – zunächst in der bildenden Kunst, dann mit wechselndem Fokus auf die Erforschung des Mediums Klang und des Klangs in der Philosophie. Sie hat eine wissenschaftliche Position für Sound Studies an der Hochschule für Künste Bremen inne, wo sie studiobasierte und theoriegeleitete Kurse unterrichtet und Masterstudierende der Fakultät für Kunst und Design betreut. Sie hat einen MFA in Fine Arts (1999) der School of the Art Institute of Chicago und forschte an der University of East London (2010–2011), dem University College Dublin (2011–2013) und der Utrecht University (2013–2018). Unter der Leitung von Prof. Dr. Marcel Cobussen und Dr. Sher Doruff hat sie 2019 ihre Doktorarbeit zu Klang und Ästhetik im Kontext von Kunstforschung und Philosophie (als Praxis) an der Academy of Creative and Performing Arts (ACPA) der Universität Leiden abgeschlossen. Ihre Kunstwerke wurden international aufgeführt und ausgestellt, unter anderen im ZKM Karlsruhe; Podewil, Berlin; Trampolin, Tokio; Weserburg, Bremen; Canard Galeria Central, Mexiko-Stadt; Galerie Herold, Bremen; Guangxi-Kunst, Nanning; GAK Gesellschaft für Aktuelle Kunst, Bremen. Sie erhielt zahlreiche Stipendien und Auszeichnungen, darunter mehrere GEDOK-Stipendien, das Joan Mitchell Foundation Stipendium, das School of The Art Institute of Chicago Trustee Scholarship und das John Quincy Adams Fellowship. Ihre Soundarbeiten werden auf Staalplaat, Boxmedia, Experimental Sound Studio Chicago und ihrem Independent Label veröffentlicht. Zwischen 2008 und 2013 kuratierte sie Sonic Peripheries: eine Reihe zu zeitgenössischen Klangpraktiken, die mit Künstlern aus den USA und Europa zusammenarbeitete. Petra Klusmeyer lebte zwischen 1988 und 2001 in den USA; derzeit lebt sie in Bremen.

Philosophie, Kunstpraxis, Forschungs-Kreation: Sound Studies
Sound Studies beschäftigt sich hier mit einer kritischen und forschungsgeleiteten Herangehensweise an klangliche Praktiken in Kunst, Design und Musik. Diese Perspektive beinhaltet eine philosophische und soziokulturelle/-ökonomische Ausrichtung, die die Erforschung kunst- und technikhistorischer und zeitgenössischer Kontexte, die für die Praxis der Kunstforschung relevant sind, in einem erweiterten (transdisziplinären) Feld umfasst. Es wird so versteht, dass die Studierenden lernen, ihre klanglichen oder damit zusammenhängenden Arbeiten zu kontextualisieren, zu reflektieren und experimentell zu entwickeln. Die Einzigartigkeit des Klangs als vergängliches Medium erfordert die Kultivierung des Zuhörens, Beobachtens und des klanglichen Denkens, das die Kompetenz der Studierenden in praktischem Know-how einerseits und theoretischen Bestrebungen andererseits ermöglicht, die zusammen unter die Schirmherrschaft der Forschungskreation fallen können.
Nach ihrer Promotion erforscht Petra Klusmeyer weiterhin die Verbindung von Philosophie und Kunstpraxis, um in ihrer Lehre einen erweiterten Klangbegriff in Kunst, Design und Theorie zu schaffen.
