From 14 August until 10 September, Uferstudios together with its partners and artists involved launched the “Month of Research”, a period of time entirely dedicated to collective research. The “Month of Research” follows the idea of gathering, sharing, openness and enquiry and offers the opportunity to experience the joy and the challenge of collective research. Within this “Month of Research”, they implemented Uferstudios' module of Critical Practice as a meta-research on the “Month of Research” itself, offering inputs and tools of reflection, analysis and exchange and experimenting with formats of verbalization, writing and depicting as modes of critical reflection and documentation of research processes and results.

The research topics were found and chosen by the artists who handed in a proposal. The research inquiries are already structurally conceived as collective research. Structure and workflow of the researches are elaborated in self-organization by the participating research groups. They give themselves their own rules, a working method, an organizational structure, including timeline, format and intensity. The only request is to publish and documenting the research outcome or their followed traces at one point, while the timing, format, structure or form of such a publication is matter of the group – it can include showings, writings, digital, visual, physical or oral formats.
