Based on contemporary artistic interventions related to everyday life, as well as the close relationship between everyday aesthetic practices and works of art in the “traditional” sense, the workshop aims to discuss the modalities of artistic production and the associated aesthetic experiences with regard to two main questions: How should we understand the interventionists potential of everyday aesthetics  in their explicit and implicit entanglement with everyday life? On the other hand, we will discuss to what extent, improvisation, in its close relationship to experimental artistic practices, is characteristic for the relation to everyday life and the potential for intervention developed from it. Accordingly, the workshop aims at better understanding the artistic specificity of everyday aesthetic phenomena and, in particular, the interweaving between art, everyday life and improvisation, thereby explaining the transformational impact of new artistic forms on structures and dynamics of the everyday.

Organized by Georg Bertram and Eva Backhaus from project B01 with Alessandro Bertinetto (Turin).
