    Politische Bildung ist in Österreich seit 1978 ein allgemeines Unterrichtsprinzip, also eine Bildungs- und Erziehungsaufgabe, die den Lehrkräften aller Schulfächer und Schulstufen obliegt. Die Ringvorlesung soll Wege aufzeigen, wie Demokratiebildung in verschiedenen Unterrichtsfächern funktionieren kann, sodass sich für Lehramtsstudierende und LehrerInnen unterschiedliche Perspektiven auf dieselbe grundsätzliche Herausforderung eröffnen.

    The workshop aims to examine the musicality of the body and vice versa the corporeality of music from a choreographic perspective. This approach corresponds with the extension of the concept of music as well as the questioning of performance traditions in the context of New Music, which also puts a stronger emphasis on the body.
    The relatively young democracy Poland, whose political climate has intensified considerably since the last elections, is also moving increasingly to the fore. Politically critical leaders of representative cultural organisations have been and continue to be replaced by the new administration, while independent creative artists appear to be able to find niches so far or already live outside the country.
