the site as an archive

TAGS: None

The Konstnärliga forskarskolan site will remain for at least five years and serve as an archive.
The calendar now looks blank,  but if you scroll back to the years and months between September 2010 to August 2015 you are able to see when and where our workshops and semester meetings were held as well as other activities and part time seminars.
The posting at this site served as a way to inform about our own activities and the part time seminars, but we also included information about what we thought was other relevant exhibitions, lectures, publications and calls at the time.
At Artists you will find an overview of all associated artists, with links to short descriptions of their PhDprojects and to completed documentations. Institutions give an overview of the participating art schools, and Supervisors an overview of the artists and researchers who have been involved as supervisors, as well as a description of the supervisors network and curriculum. Activities mainly gives an overview of semester meetings and workshops for the associated artists, but also of other network activities. At Office you will find a description of those of us who worked with Konstnärliga forskarskolan, and at Remnants finally you can download our final report to the Swedish Research Council and get information on how to find our anthology on supervision in artistic research as well as other kind of documents and documentation.
(Before the closing down of Konstnärliga forskarskolan we hosted an overview of concluded PhD projects in the art field since 2006, with links to abstract or open access publications, as well as an overview of PhD candidates in the arts not formally associated to Konstnärliga forskarskolan. These pages are absent here since they would need maintenance to continue to be relevant.)

final celebration

the closing down of Konstnärliga forskarskolan was commemorated with a garden party a warm late August evening, featuring a celebratory cake, reminiscent of a mythical tower…
Five strange and exciting years have come to an end. Thanks to all involved and thanks to all external workshop leaders, lecturers and examinators who have contributed to the endeavour  – and our best wishes for the futures of our associated artists!

Practices of the Essential In-Between

75% PhD seminar STEALTH.unlimited (Ana Džokić + Marc Neelen)

When: Monday, 15 June 2015,14.00 – 18.00
Where: City in the Making, Pieter de Raadtstraat 35, 3033 VC Rotterdam, The Netherlands

Practices of the Essential In-Between is an explorative journey with a transformative consequence for STEALTH.unlimited’s practice. The seminar on June 15, part of the PhD trajectory at the Royal Institute of Art in Stockholm (KKH), will take place in Rotterdam, at the very site of one of STEALTH’s ongoing projects, co-initiated within the association City in the Making. Moving between the floors of a set of buildings recently rescued from a destiny of long-term hibernation, the seminar will reflect on this particular endeavour from the perspective of the mind- boggling issue of how and on which premises to common the city, in the context of the unravelling welfare state and re-emergent struggles forurban existence.
The seminar brings contributions by Martijn Jeroen van der Linden (researcher and PhD candidate at TU Delft /Economics of Innovation and Technology), since 2009 involved in new economic thinking, his PhD thesis focuses on the purposes of money and capital, and aims to propose a new design for the monetary system, Aetzel Griffioen (political philosopher, co-ordinator of Skillcity Rotterdam), who researches new forms of collective prosperity and works on socioecologic education in neighbourhoods of Rotterdam-South, and City in the Making community – Erik Jutten, Guido Marsille, Piet Vollaard. Throughout the seminar Ana and Marc will enter a conversation with Saskia van Stein (curator, director Bureau Europa Maastricht) that will zoom-out on the larger framework of STEALTH’s work, particularly in the last couple of years.

politics of form 4-5 august 2015 (1 hp)

Tags: ,

Date: 4-5. August 2015
Location: Hus 28, KKH 4th August, Tensta Konsthall 5th August

In this workshop (1 ECTS-credit) we will watch short art films and videos together with Renate Lorentz and Karin Michalski and discuss their politics (especially queer-feminist and decolonizing politics). However, the focus will be on the forms and methods: How do these films experiment with forms? Which types of performance are included? Which temporalities occur? Which kind of camera work is visible? Which role plays sound and listening? What exactly are the politics of all these formal decisions?
