course contents

Applied Cultural Sciences offers the opportunity to merge the knowledge and insights acquired in Cultural Sciences I and II and Cultural Management I and II and to analyze these in a number of different practice-oriented contexts:
• excursion with preparatory tasks to a cultural organization with a tour and discussion with management
• comparative analysis of an exhibition over a period of time, in contrast to a more compact excursion
• festival excursion with an analysis of the program and critical analysis of the festival in the contexts of cultural management and cultural sciences
• guest lectures by artists, curators, cultural policymakers and/or cultural managers with a moderated plenary session
• group comparative analysis of the range of cultural activities offered by two cities or regions
• group analysis of a piece of art in relation to aesthetic codes, thematic connections, its renown and impact history
• group analysis of intercultural connections within a region
The course aims to offer students the opportunity to deepen and apply their knowledge and to support the processes involved in acquiring an understanding of cultural science.
