Title of presentation
TransCoding—From ‘Highbrow Art’ to Participatory Culture
Social Media – Art – Research
What do K-pop artist PSY and gender theorist Judith Butler, contemporary music and pop culture have in common? The artistic research project TransCoding –From ‘Highbrow Art’ to Participatory Culture (PEEK AR 259-G21, 2014-17), funded by the Austrian Science Fund, engaged with this question through the topic of participatory culture by using social media in the context of artistic practice. TransCoding encouraged participation and shared discourse in the new arts by actively involvin an online audience in the making of an artwork on the topic of ‘identity’. As part of her lecture at the mdw – University of Music and Performing Arts Vienna, Barbara Lüneburg will perform the multimedia artwork Slices of Life (2016/17) for violin and voice, video and soundtrack that forms a main artistic outcome of the project. Lüneburg will also reflect on the artistic productions of TransCoding under the aspect of participatory culture and social media; she will critically shed light on questions of authority and shared authorship, look into the influence of the research project on the participating artists and the community, and trace knowledge production and dissemination in artistic research by way of creating, performing, and sharing.
