Product Description

“Artistic research can act as a driving force in the creation of necessary epistemological curiosity that can address urgent contemporary challenges, encouraging new connections between disciplines, paradigms and researchers. Realizing the limitations of socially engaged art, Carsten Lisecki is aiming to develop a multitude of apparatuses as an act of decoding social research by actualizing and materializing its concepts, followed by a re-coding through performance, poetry, music and visual art. In his practice such gestures open the possibility to an epistemology of urgency, employing art-based research as a catalyst that could overcome the limits of social policy, especially in times of political and social crisis. Carsten’s methodological attitude and his never ending experimentation becomes more relevant due to the urgency of contemporary challenges. The motivation remains to highlight, and clarify the ways in which art coexists with society, and the city remains one of the privileged sites for representing this coexistence while the methodology of drawing publics out of their comfort zone in the most unexpected places and for the most unusual reasons is
one of the most fruitful methodologies of artistic research that one can encounter.”
