Margarete Jahrmann’s main interest lies in the artistic research and exploration of insight through Ludics, playful mechanisms in the arts. She works on science of science, media epistemology, neurosciences. Her artistic strategies include game arts, film, digital theater and media installations, including artefacts and apps. Stemming from her practical and theoretical experiences in game theories and cultures and an international exhibition and lecture practice she developed an origin Ludic method as part of her Ph.D. in Arts and Sciences, in the arts based programme of the CAIIA all stars/ planetary collegium, University of Plymouth, UK. Margarete Jahrmann currently is guest professor at the University of Applied Arts Vienna, PhD in Arts programme and professor Game Design ZHDK, Zurich University of the Arts.

An emanation of this arts based research experience is her academic focus on the development and investigation of potential arts research methodologies, the LUDIC METHOD and scientific  experiments in public performances and the mis en scène of discourse and science, in short play as art.
