‘Performativity’ is a key term in today’s cultural and aesthetic studies. The interdisciplinary symposium and workshop “Performativity and Artistic Practices” discusses notions and concepts of ‘performativity’ in academic and artistic practice with guest artists and scholars. What do we mean when we use the term ‘performativity’? How does ‘performativity’ enhance our understanding of the arts? How do artists in all fields work with concepts of ‘performativity’ in order to point at questions of gender, materialization, process, reception, and space? How do performative arts and performative acts become political through ‘performativity’?
