no_faq sees itself as a research collective linking scientific and artistic research methods. In particular, no_faq is interested in a performative practice oriented towards artistic research. It is intended herewith, to create a space for both independent and collective research practice. Allowing therewith the reflections and exploration of these processes. The relationships in this case between students and teachers are not to be subdivided hierarchically but to undergo a process of interacting reflection. The research seminar no_faq explores the strategies and methods that artistic research holds for architecture education. The artistic procedures should not appear as purely aesthetic-design features, but become an essential component of a critical research attitude within the wider educational aspects of the architect. The resulting materials (microstudies) describing the research process will be made accessible to the public in form of a discursive exhibition display. Due to the complex but also open and process orientated nature of the seminar, I arrived out two central questions for my own research to take a critical and reflective perspective by looking at the processes of the seminar: The first question addresses the contextual level: How can spacial structures of an institution be explored on the basis of artistic-performative practices? Specifically, to analyse the institutional space of the Badischer Kunstverein Karlsruhe. The second question focusses on the didactical level: Which methods can we discover in order to develop a critically orientated collaborative attitude within the research process? Collective actions in my eyes are more process oriented, open-ended, have nothing to do with effectiveness and are not purely a group activity.
