The Politics of Form (art film and video)
Date: 4-5. August
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?

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 forSTEALTH.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 rescuedfrom a destiny of long-term hibernation,the seminar will reflect on this particularendeavourfrom 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.
What’s in it for the humanities and the social sciences?
June 3, 17:00 – 19:00
This is the last seminar within the series Will art save the world? – a public seminar series where the role of artistic research within different fields will be debated.
The last seminar in a series of four is focusing on the social sciences and the humanities. The idea is to discuss the role of artistic research and what it can mean for the humanities and the social sciences. We will criticize, discuss, speculate, dream and problematize what artistic research can mean for the field of art, for the society, and for the humanities and the social sciences.

Disordering Listening – a workshop with Cathy Lane
Date: 18.-19. June
Location: Academy of Fine Arts, Schillerplatz 3, 1030 Vienna, DG-12 (top floor)
‘Disordering Listening – a practical seminar’ is a collective investigation into the role and potentials of listening, considering sound-based practice around listening in relation to social and political subjects and subjectivities. In particular exploring acts and organizations of listening that are embedded in daily life and that activate multiple responses: philosophical, psychological, phenomenological, perceptual, conceptual, political, etc. To “disorder” listening would be to embrace all of these responses transversally, rather than isolating “listening” as an autonomous category of experience.

The Victims of Modernization – a workshop with Akay and Klisterpeter
Date: 18-20 May 2015
Location: Stockholm, Ropsten
Stockholm is a city in constant transformation with many huge construction projects that not only adds but also obviously changes the map of the city. During this process there are many functioning houses that stand in the way for a new large scaled building project. We seldom hear about these places, the houses and buildings until they are demolished, then we can usually read about them (links in swedish).
