TransAct 2 – Linguistic Fields

The subject of presentation and examination in the course of TransAct 2 is everyday language  – its usage, its "action" in public discourse. Concepts from everyday linguistic discourse are, for example, used as key words and transposed to other fields of language or interpretation and then interpreted from these new fields. This "de-territorialisation" should signify possibilities for the interpretation of terms, sentences and texts from everyday usage, should shift everyday discourse into these related but different fields and thereby open a wide and differentiated "new" semantic field. These fields of interpretation also include artistic connotations which expand the semantic field in visual dimensions – the language of signs and of images.

"TransAct 2  – Linguistic Fields" is a museum in progress project in cooperation with the daily newspaper DER STANDARD, supported by artpool.
