In the wake of the “ethnographic turn” of the 1990s, much artistic research became a mix of learning exercise, theatrical rehearsal, scientific experiment, and/ or laboratory test. Our workshop will address this expanding field of artists, actors/ dancers/ performers, curators, media activists, writers, who shared an interest in experimental and performative methods of collective education. We will relate this advanced performance work, with its reliance on methods of “trial and error,” to a growing disaffection with the aesthetics and epistemologies of Western high culture in a post-disciplinary society.
