OPEN CALL FOR TEACHERS AND STUDENTS
FOR (ARTISTIC) RESEARCH PROJECTS
The research centre of the Faculty of the Arts offers lecturers, teachers and students... time to work on (artistic) research projects. For the first time, for the coming year, teachers and/or students can submit their own proposal for a research project. They can do this jointly or individually. The proposals can be connected to existing courses and should preferably be executed together with students, but they can also be more detached from existing curricula. They can also be executed with external partners.
The proposals should always be related to the program lines of the Technology Driven Art research centre. It is primarily interested in the question how new technology provides cause for new artistic practices. To get a more precise idea of the domains of interest of this research centre, you can browse through the 'Lectoraatsplan' section of this site - unfortunately, Dutch only for the time being...
If you have an idea – articulate or still somewhat vague – for a research proposal within the boundaries of the research subject (Art and Technology), please contact us any time.
For more information or a friendly chat... please contact Peter Missotten, using this contact form.
DER GOLEM - A VIDEO LIBRETTO BY PETER MISSOTTEN FOR AN OPERA BY BERNARD LANG 2014-16
What if the libretto for an opera wouldn't be a scripted play, but a silent movie? How - if at all - would that change the concept of an opera?
In this project, Peter Missotten created an enigmatic silent movie, loosely based on the book of Gustav Meyerinck 'Der Golem'. It was the basis for the new opera by Bernard Lang, which was staged by Peter Missotten into a high (and low) tech opera for the Opera of Mannheim in 2016. Unexpectedly, it turned out that the video-libretto didn't have so much of an influence on the storyline of the opera, but had a big impact on it's structure and the music itself….
This opera and video libretto is the basis of a practice based REsearch into the influence of a video based libretto in an opera.
