This week we had a class visit from the Leipzig University of Applied Sciences. Coming from a science background, this group of students heightened our self-awareness and gave us the chance to clarify the way we speak of art. To those who are unfamiliar with an art themed discourse, conceptual practices may seem inaccessible, but the conversation we had showed that with enough curiosity, there are many common themes to explore. We discussed the possibilities of art as field work, and as an active form of anthropology, the authorship of the artist, the process of forming a visual language, and the necessity of text or information when making an analysis of contemporary art work. We thank the class and the efforts of Professor Friedriche Figge for visiting us!
