Exhibition of the Angewandte in Singapore: UNDERSTANDING – ART & RESEARCH

From November 19, 2018, the University of Applied Arts Vienna will present various approaches to its research under the title UNDERSTANDING – ART & RESEARCH in Singapore. In cooperation with the renowned School of Art, Design and Media (ADM), Nanyang Technological University Singapore (NTU), exemplary research and teaching will be on display.
It is about understanding possibilities of research of and through art in new ways, about understanding as the very driving force of inquiry, artistic and scientific activity. The desire and claim to contribute to the transformation of society can be viewed, examined, sensed, discussed and experienced through examples from research and teaching, science and art, design and architecture.

15 different examples of artistic research practice are presented, always challenging the established perspective. As a further artistic position, a work by Niki Passath will be presented in Singapore. In addition, there is the work of the Fulldome Laboratory and the Science Visualization Lab.

The exhibition UNDERSTANDING – ART & RESEARCH, curated by Gerald Bast, Alexander Damianisch and Barbara Putz-Plecko, was newly adapted and designed after a first station in April 2018 in New Zealand (Dunedin School of Art).

Further details of the exhibition: Location: ADM Gallery, 81 Nanyang Drive, Singapore 637458; Period: 19 November – 30 November, opening: 19 November 2018, 5:20 pm. The opening will take place in the context of the conference DANCING OVER IDEAS OF RESEARCH (19–21 November 2018).
