PUTTING CULTURAL THEORY INTO PRACTICE. DESIGNING PROCESSES
ear is a center of artistic practice and research: a start-up for scholars and critics in the arts and culture. It is a place of knowledge transfer: ear is committed to establishing innovative cooperation practices and models which forge links between the arts and sciences and between well-established and emerging institutions. ear challenges conventional forms of practice and develops new approaches through the application of strategies drawn from the fields of cultural and art theory. We turn theory into practice and shape processes of transformation. How is our knowledge generated? Which sociocultural factors shape its emergence? And how do they impact on our production processes? Within this context artistic practice figures as a multi-layered field of research. As a complex cultural practice. ear is positioned as a new form of research. A network of autonomous actors. A laboratory of the contemporary!
