P/ART/ICIPATE – The Matrix of Cultural Production

 

The project “P/ART/ICIPATE“ is developed and conducted at the program area Contemporary Arts & Cultural Production within the Focus area Science and Art at the University of Salzburg in Cooperation with the University Mozarteum.

 

The project investigates the following areas:

(a)    Artistic strategies as cultural interventionist communication strategies
(b)   Artistic collectives and collaborative working processes
(c)    Requirements for collaborative and process-oriented production and management processes
(d)   Participatory cultural production with and by young people

 

Aims:

1. Documentation and analysis of contemporary artistic interventions as projects of cultural production and in relation to the meaning of communication processes involved

2. Development of a theoretical model of a matrix of cultural production based on the circuit of culture and in the context of contemporary artistic practices, cultural citizenship, participatory culture, participation and process-based cultural management

3. Development of a toolbox to facilitate a practice-oriented navigation within and through the matrix of cultural production in the context of contemporary artistic practices for cultural producers

 

Method:

– literature review

– case studies

– qualitative interviews with cultural producers (individual and focus groups)
