This project tutorial can count as the second component (seminar) for BA modules 3, 9 and 12, as well as ÜWP, but no examinations can be held Kommentar: This project tutorial is concerned with the lives of things and the various research strands that deal with them. It draws from archaeology, anthropology, and philosophy as well as Science and Technology Studies. In the course of the seminar, we will explore different types of objects, object-related practices and object-places. The core teaching methods are object handling, museum visits, and object biographies. The historical and contemporary approaches to objects we will discuss range from historical to new materialism, and relational ontologies to Actor Network Theory. At the core of these theoretical debates lies the (deconstruction of) the nature-culture dichotomy and its related object-subject division as well as a deep criticism of anthropocentric, Eurocentric, and colonial discourses. Therewith we are asking the question: if objects are defined anew, how do the subjects – humans – position themselves and in relation to their thing-environment? Over the course of the semester the students will develop their own exhibition which will showcase the approaches we have experimented with. Course requirements: 1 written object biography, 1 presentation and participation in the exhibition. No prior knowledge is required. Students from all degrees with an interest in objects and museums are welcome. Tutorials will be held in English and/or German, depending on the participants’ requirements.
