Exhibitions 2018

The annual program 2018 at Kunstraum Lakeside was devoted to the concept of “research.” As one of the foundations of an investigative practice designed to generate knowledge and insights, research is usually described as a goal-oriented process of finding information, consisting of the collection, validation, and analysis of data. In contrast to such a linearly organized process, research in an artistic context not only precedes the artistic work but becomes the actual object of the representation. By means of their research, artists bring certain topics and issues to our attention using visual means while also examining the possibilities and alternatives offered by their own visualization practice. Research is thus ultimately inseparable from the art object, and any boundaries drawn between the work and the methods that lead to it become obsolete.
