Working on Gazes: An Example for Artistic Research
2014 (English)In: ECER 2014, The Past, the Present and the Future of Educational Research: Network: 29. Research on Arts Education, 2014Conference paper, Abstract (Refereed)
Situated at the boundary between Liberal Arts and diverse scientific approaches, artistic research has been developed within the last few years in terms of admitting various forms of knowledge acquisition. My presentation will deal with a film project which is actually not meant to be artistic research: In „Through the Eyes of Others“ Heike Schuppelius (2001) sent out four performers equipped with video-glasses (a small, not visible camera, built into ordinary spectacles) on foot through a certain area. The resulting filmed sequences are determined by the field of vision and by the head movements of the participants. The scenes are therefore supposed to present an approximation of the authentic view-point of the performer. They follow up the subjective awareness of a path determined by the actions and reactions, personal customs and interests of each of the acting persons. Also unplanned events, chance encounters and the urban environment are written into the film. I argue that this kind of data can be interpreted in terms of and as an answer to methodological and methodical challenges the Children´s Studies have faced since they arose about 30 years ago.
