Artistic Practice as Means for Investigation in Artistic Research

Tuesday 31 October '23 Conservatorium Zwolle, Aan de Stadsmuur 88 (Reulandzaal)

taal: English
Performing artist and researcher of international reputation in the fields of contemporary music, violin and multimedia Barbara Lüneburg explores performance practice not as a pure or absolute art but as something embedded in and shaped by social relations and society. She highlights the intricacies and complexities of interrelations between performers and music promoters, composers and audiences. In her artistic research, she found the means to combine both the inside perspective of the active artist and the investigative mindset of a researcher to thoroughly research her own artistic discipline and practice.

In her talk, she will address the principles of knowledge production in artistic research and present methods of artistic research that she has developed for her current research project Embodying Expression, Gender, Charisma – Breaking Boundaries of Classical Instrumental Practices, a multi-year research project funded by the Austrian Science Fund. She will demonstrate how artistic practice serves as a means to explore otherwise difficult or even impossible to access phenomena and express research findings in a multi-sensory, comprehensive way.

After her lecture performance Barbara Lüneburg will talk to some second-year students from the ArtEZ Masters of Music about the presentation of artistic research as an artistic practice.
