Upcoming courses in Konstnärliga Forskarskolan:
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).
Translate, Intertwine,Transgress – a symposium organized by Björn Säfsten and Per Nilsson
Date: 11-13 June 2015
Location: MDT and Moderna Museet Skeppsholmen
The choreographer Björn Säfsten and the philosopher Per Nilsson have engaged over the past three years in a multidisciplinary research project involving choreography and philosophy, at the Umeå Academy of Fine Arts. In association with Moderna Museet and MDT, lectures, performances, workshops, discussions and parties will take place on Skeppsholmen for three days, to summarise and celebrate the conclusions of this project. The symposium will take place during the opening of the exhibition After Babel, thus providing a meeting place and venue for events. In lectures and choreographic works, researchers and artists will comment on and discuss the relationship between choreography, art and philosophy. Different theoretical and artistic fields are brought together to explore how they may influence our critical thinking. The symposium will feature works and lectures by Cristina Caprioli, Bojana Cvejić, Mette Edvardsen, Abraham Hurtado, Michael Kliën, Jennifer Lacey, Per Nilsson & Gerd Aurell, Peggy Phelan, Richard Shusterman, Alma Söderberg & Hendrik Willekens, Sarah Vanhee and Haegue Yang.
Disordering Listening – a workshop with Cathy Lane
Date: 18-19 June 2015 Location: Academy of Fine Arts, Schillerplatz 3, 1030 Vienna
‘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.
