Performative practices and notions of performativity are recognized as full-fledged aspects of contemporary art and
design. It is in this perspective that key-actors of the University of Applied Arts Vienna are launching the Angewandte
(APL). The APL is a transversal artistic research and education platform that focusses
on the relationship between the body, perception, and the arts and society in a post-digital context. Its purpose is to serve
as an incubator to promote performance as an artistic medium and as a field of research.
By combining in-house
and international expertise, the APL offers body training practices; digital performance workshops; conferences, symposia,
and publications; master classes and presentations by guest artists; project development; and public presentations.
The APL supports the diversity of distinctive approaches while facilitating their convergence through interdepartmental
- Socio-cultural, political, and site-specific interventions;
- Somatic practices,
improvisation, and notation strategies;
- Hybridization and performativity of media and technologies;
of the living and non-living;
- Historical and investigative dimensions of performance.
