Mediation of performance art as aesthetic practice

In his research project with the title “Mediation of performance art as aesthetic practice”, Simon Niemann investigates the specific characteristics of performance art from the perspective of mediation. Here mediation is not treated as a secondary process to the artistic product, but instead is itself considered an aesthetic practice. Focusing on the demands that performance art makes of a new definition of mediation that is to be developed, a system will be developed that allows performance art as a specific form of public discourse with its own artistic quality to be made accessible to children, young people and adults.
