Week 7-14: 3/7-5/2
Student-led Workshops to field test experimental observational methods

As a workshop-facilitator, you will share a set of three readings a week in advance.
These readings should come out of your existing research practices and there is no
need to look for something completely new – just select articles or chapters of books
that inspired you the most so far. You can also ask the group to bring in simple tools or
instruments (like a measure tape, a mobile phone, paper, pen, a laptop). You will initiate
your workshop with a short and simple “observational score” — take a look at the fluxus
event score book for syntax/examples. You can stick to a single instruction (which will
then take up to 30 min) or introduce a series of shorter micro-observations. After the
observation, the class will discuss the experience and give feedback on how the initial
observational score could be modified or extended. The collected instructions of all
workshops will be “published” as an Observational Score Book.
