designing scopes of actions
production as worldbuilding

Not only the often used self given credit "creative producer" shows that production is increasingly understood as aesthetic work. Production in the performing arts not only creates scope for artists, but also shapes it. Often, transformation processes in the art and culture business find their beginning precisely here; producers decide not least on accessibility, visibility, and the usage of budgets, and thus actively work on the connection between art and the reality in which it takes place.

Following on from this, the question arises as to what this shaping looks like: What kind of aesthetics does production work virtually produce, how should the scopes of actions be designed in order to properly work with and/or in them? And what do strategies look like to approach these ideas?

The workshop offers space for exchange and thinking together about the aesthetic dimensions of one's own work in the field of production.

This workshop is the last of three online events offered by the Arbeitsgruppe für institutionsästhetische Forschung und Praxis (Buchberger/Kohn/Reiniger) that deal with the location and description of organizational processes in the broadest sense and the protagonists* involved in them in the field of artistic production. The individual workshops can be attended independently of each other.

working group for institutional aesthetics research and practice

The Arbeitsgruppe für institutionsästhetische Forschung und Praxis (working group for institutional aesthetic research and practice) is an association of cultural workers. It serves as a forum for discursive reflection on cultural work and its current conditions. Our research takes place equally in practice and theory, without insisting on a sharp dividing line.

The basis of our joint work is the shared interest in understanding institutions and framing structures of the cultural sector aesthetically and using them to explore art and culture in interaction with reality. We consider any work on culture, art or theater as an aesthetic practice. The term "institution" should therefore not only refer to fixed companies and structures, but to all associations that structure a common work - in the cultural business and beyond.

Together we develop theatrical methods, publish, give workshops and lead exchange formats. Our concern is to develop a common vocabulary that enables and advances the awareness and reflection of the complex connections between aesthetics and institution, between (cultural) work and reality.

The Arbeitsgruppe für institutionsästhetische Forschung und Praxis consists of Julia Buchberger, Patrick Kohn and Max Reiniger.
