Performing Citizenship

From 2015-2017 the Graduate School Performing Citizenship aimed to analyze new forms or citizenship and its inherent perfromative turn under the term “performing citizenship”. Since artistic practices play an important role in this context, the postgraduate programme was conceived methodologically as an artistic academic cooperation. The three-year programme qualified doctoral candidates both artistically and academically, and can thus contribute to ground and advance Hamburg’s pioneering role in the development (and sophistication) of artistic research. The Graduate School included a colloquium, workshops, public events, practical experiments and interventions in public space to investigate Performing Citizenship from a multi- and transdisciplinary perspective blending urban studies, cultural education, choreography, philosophy, urban design and cultural studies.
