During the last 15 years, the strategy of artists conducting interviews has become firmly established as a form of artistic production. Thus, the time has now arrived to consider whether the artistic interview has become a format that, due to its own formal and contentual criteria, is worthy of its appellation. To what extent are there similarities and differences to other interview forms in sociology, ethnology and journalism?
The long evening begins at 5 pm with a screening of three different interview pieces. Following a meal break, the evening continues at 7:30 pm with a panel discussion in which positions relevant to sociology, cultural studies, journalism and fine arts will be covered.
