Sala del Camino, Venice
Research Pavilion

Every Saturday (15 July - 12 Aug) the Galleria del Vento, the Research Pavilion's second exhibition by Florian Dombois, houses a reflective workshop in its Palaver-area (an architecture that allows for discourse and art) following different questions:

15. July 2017 – 10-17 h
[Workshop] Gold from Gust

How did, and how will, Venice benefit from the wind?

Venice obviously owes a large part of its treasures to the wind, ever since sailing boats brought trade to the city from all over the world. What are the physical vestiges of that rich and golden history? What did the wind do? What is it doing today? Which role will it play in Venice’s future?

With Olivier Chazot, Michelangelo Corsaro, Andrea Curtoni, GiuliaMazzorin and Florian Dombois.

Organized by Florian Dombois, Research Focus in Transdisciplinarity, ZHdK, Zurich.

22. July 2017 – 10-17 h
[Workshop] In the Agora of Art

How to share, how to challenge artistic practice and production?
One very basic description of scientific research defines it as “sharable” and “challengeable.” How can these two claims be translated into the art world? Which forms of sharing exist between artists, and which ones need to be developed? How do artists challenge each other’s work, and which new modes of debate need to be developed?

With Peter Ablinger, Ari Benjamin Meyers, Stefan Prins, Germán Toro Pérez and Florian Dombois.

Organized by Florian Dombois, Germán Toro Pérez, Research Focus in Transdisciplinarity in cooperation with Institute for Computer Music and Sound Technology, ZHdK, Zurich.

29. July 2017 – 10-17 h
[Workshop] Friendship of Artists and Scientists

How might artists collaborate with researchers from the natural and human sciences?

All scientists seeking transdisciplinarity seem to have a problem. Whether this problem arises within or outside the sciences is intensely debated. But isn’t thinking in problems itself problematic? How can people who don’t share a problem work together? And how might people who don’t even share thinking in problems work together?

With Thomas Grunwald, Anton Rey, Sarine Waltenspül and Florian Dombois.

Organized by Florian Dombois, Anton Rey, Research Focus in Transdisciplinarity in cooperation with Institute for Performing Arts and Film, ZHdK, Zurich.

5. August 2017 – 10-17 h
[Workshop] Not-yet Art. And for Good Reasons!?

How does something become art?

Knowledge production is a much discussed issue. But does the research done at art universities perhaps not “produce” any “knowledge”? Well, why should it? Do artists actually need knowledge? What do artists need to make “something” into art? Perhaps research departments should “produce” this “something”? Something that isn’t yet art, but almost?
With Anna Engberg-Pedersen, Tom Holert, Dieter Mersch, Hito Steyerl and Florian Dombois.

Organized by Florian Dombois, Dieter Mersch, Research Focus in Transdisciplinarity in cooperation with Institute for Critical Theory, ZHdK, Zurich.

12. August 2017 – 10-17 h
[Workshop] Academia As a Resource

How can art universities support artists and the arts in general?

Isn’t the purpose of research to advance a given discipline? Thus, shouldn’t mathematical research advance mathematics? And shouldn’t artistic research advance the arts? How do art universities interact with freelance artists, who form the market and try to survive in it? What do art universities do to develop the art world besides producing new competitors?
With Pavel Büchler, Philippe Pirotte and Florian Dombois.
