Laboratory on Feedback in Artistic Processes

Audiences #2/2105

In its second edition the Laboratory on Feedback in Artistic Processes focused on contemporary feedback culture in regards to the audience. What can public feedback with audiences do for the artist and the audience itself? The laboratory explored alternatives to the artistic exchange based on explanation and justification (e.g. the format of the explanatory artist talk).

Some of the issues that the laboratory focused on were: What kind of feedback is needed where, and who benefits discussing the artists’ work: the artist, the audience community and/or the broader cultural context and public? How can public feedback shape communities and a public sphere?

The practical and experimental part of the laboratory included the format of „Feedback lab goes public“ where a number of different methods were tried out with the audience at Tanztage 2015 right after (or before) the performances.
