As part of the research project "The Art of Equal Participation", the website AN DEN RÄNDERN will be launched on July 15. The launch represents the first prelude of the digital plattfom, which will successively offer insights into the thematic areas and development of the project in the coming weeks and months.
The concept of the website follows thematic interfaces within the group in the form of cross-references between the main content areas of the individual research projects. In this way, the digital platform provides virtual access to all content generated within the project. As a central element of the website, the search movements of the users are traced by lines/threads. The visitors' own search process becomes visible and perceptible; individual connections of words, terms, persons and events are created, which make the visitors appear as active participants.
The page architecture is based on five different levels or containers that overlap at the edges and can be moved individually: Intro (landing page), Glossary (dictionary), Exhibition, Workshops and People.
The concept, design and programming of the website are designed to be barrier-free. The website is implemented bilingually (English/German) as well as in easy language.
The artistic research project "The Art of Equal Participation" started in January 2022 at the Academy of Visual Arts Leipzig. It is funded by the European Social Fund Young Researcher* Groups REACT-EU: As part of the Union's response to the COVID-19 pandemic.
