Alice Neusiedler

My PhD is about participatory art practices. I research ways of organizing and collaboration within and of participatory art projects, processes of meaning production, and political and social implications of those projects. I am especially interested in the relation of the involved agents, social practices within those projects, and more generally in the interrelation of the art field and the social, in social inequalities and potential of social change.

I am interested in qualitative research methods (especially Documentary Method) and methodology, feminist and intersectional approaches to research, and practice theory.

I have a background in sociology and theatre, film and media studies and worked in an applied project evaluating the Luxembourgish law on social aid before joining MPP for my PhD.
