Welcome and Introduction

Can aesthetic practice be understood as research? How can we say that the production of art as a creative process on the one hand and the experience of art on the other hand is a form of cognition? In his lecture, Alex Arteaga presents his thesis of the operative relationship between aesthetic practice and a specific concept of knowledge, which is based on an embodied, situated, relational, processual and transformative form of knowledge – “embodied knowledge”.
Alex Arteaga (born 1969 in Barcelona) studied music theory, piano, composition, electronic music and architecture in Berlin and Barcelona and earned a Ph.D. in philosophy at Berlin’s Humboldt University with a dissertation on cognition and aesthetic practices entitled “Sensuous framing. Grundzüge einer Strategie zur Konzeption und Verwirklichung von Rahmenbedingungen des Wahrnehmens“ (Sensuous Framing: Outline of a Strategy for the Conception and Realization of the Conditions of Perception). In addition to his artistic activities, he is currently a research associate at the Collegium for the Advanced Study of Picture Art and Embodiment (Humboldt University Berlin), visiting professor for embodiment and aesthetics at the Inter-University Center for Dance, Berlin, co-director of the Aural Architecture Research Unit (Berlin University of the Arts, UdK), and researcher at the Social Sculpture Research Unit (Oxford Brookes University).Share this post
