EXPERIMENTAL SCENOGRAPHY WORKSHOP: peripheries in parallax

The Experimental Scenography Workshop 2020-21 focused on the phenomenon of ´peripheries´ through the means of artistic research and approached the research conference as a place for exploratory art.

In the workshop ´periphery´ has been considered as something spatial, aesthetic and material, as well as a philosophical, societal and political phenomenon and concept related to various artistic and scientific fields. The students have founded art and research projects related to the subject, set the research questions and defined their approach and methodologies tied to their artistic work. The aim has been to unravel and understand the multidimensionality of peripheries and make them visible and experiential through research-oriented artistic processes.

The students’ research processes and/or results are displayed as part of the MATTER Art Event that takes place in the surroundings of Otaniemi campus during 22nd January – 18th April 2021, and in the form of Research Catalogue (RC) research expositions.

Links to RC expositions coming soon.
