BK3201 - Exploring Artistic Entrepreneurship
Examination arrangement: Works
Grade: Passed / Not Passed
The embedded nature of the knowledge produced through artistic research becomes most evident in knowledge transfer. However when discussing the practical aspects of artistic practice, the professional will meet an apparatus which creates exclusivities, often surpassed by innovative strategies which reorganize the way art is produced and mediated.
Due to widely accessible ubiquitous technologies of dissemination, there are new emerging platforms for participation, contribution and impact for artists in different professional contexts.
Artistic Entrepreneurship argues for an agency that involves and engages new combinations and new forms of cooperation among researchers, concepts and ideas, technologies, resources, and machines. It paves the way for a different kind of entrepreneurship in the truest sense of the word: Rather than just a business model, it is the undertaking or new beginning of acting together across sectors, across actors and across disciplines, to inspire people to tackle the challenges society faces.
The course introduces students to a professional framework within a social, cultural, political and / or environmental context that affects both the development of an artistic position and its public reception.
The learning objective focuses on work on a group project. Students working around a common theme collectively develop strategic artistic agency and techniques of documentation.
Possible collaboration with external partners from the professional field will be an integral part of working with and reflecting upon the artist's various roles and tasks in society at large.
This course combines artistic practice and critical discourse through collective dissemination projects which relate to one or more key areas from the MFA course portfolio. Dissemination, in this sense, relates to formats of publishing and exhibiting as forms of learning.
