BUZZ | Par­a­sitic Media Interventions

Field Study, Per­for­mances and Exhibition 
by Daniel Fet­zn­er and Martin Dornberg

The artis­tic research BUZZ is divid­ed into two phases; in August 2014 an artis­tic research lab­o­ra­to­ry was estab­lished in the Indian Insti­tute of Sci­ence, IISc Ban­ga­lore. The lab explored issues relat­ing to embod­i­ment the­o­ries, obser­va­tion prac­tices of social insects and entan­gle­ments of human and animal soci­eties at the exam­ple of the South Indian wasp Ropa­lidia marginata.
In a second phase the work results from India will be dis­cussed in coop­er­a­tion with the ethno­graph­ic film fes­ti­val in Freiburg/Germany. BUZZ focuss­es on the prac­tices of knowl­edge build­ing in dif­fer­ent con­textes. The con­cept of the par­a­site and its use in dif­fer­ent research strate­gies is used to explore the field.
