HRK-EXPERTISE Manual: Regional Cooperations for the Support of International Scientists

HRK-EXPERTISE-Manual: Salon for Aesthetic Experiments

For the first time, the Hochschulrektorenkonferenz (HRK) introduces an artistic program in one of its manuals: our Salon für Ästhetische Experimente. The HRK-EXPERTISE-Manuals feature regional collaborations with the aim to support international scientists and describe processes required for internationalisation in German universities.

Salon für Ästhetische Experimente is the series of events where the international fellows and alumni of the Graduate School of the Berlin University of the Arts (UdK), coming from different artistic disciplines, share their ongoing work and research with the Berlin public in diverse formats. The aesthetic experiment is driven by curiosity, it chooses to challenge rather than to affirm. Therefore, in its seven years history, Salon für Ästhetische Experimente has become a platform for creative and speculative proposals, interventions and activities initiated by the fellows. The events take the form of conversation, presentation, projection, workshop or performance to prepare a refreshing ground for discussing and questioning contemporary artistic processes, new modus operandi, research questions and current projects in a public context.

The article about the Salon für Ästhetische Experimente can be found on pages 12-15 of the manual, which can be found here as a PDF (German; Bonn, January 2020) or under the following link:
