card2

The purpose of CARD2  is to create a meeting place for international researchers to introduce and share their research and to illuminate how circus practice has developed and how the field of artistic research differs from research for production. The first CARD conference was launched by the University of Circus as an attempt to demystify artistic research in Circus.

Within the conference series CLOSE ENCOUNTERS, the Circus Department at the School of Dance and Circus, part of Stockholm University of the Arts (Uniarts), Sweden, is now accepting proposals for the second conference of Circus Arts Research and Development.

unfixing images



Tags:

PhDArts in Leiden presents a symposium and a discussion on imagery in the flux of ploitical action:

The symposium UNFIXING IMAGES focuses on visual documents that develop within processes of political resistance. As bi-products of larger socio-political struggles these documents can be understood both as visual traces of “lived politics” and as tools that can diversify hegemonial historiographies. In this context images are understood as “variational characters”: their “meaning” is inherently unstable as it is intimately linked to the temporality of the processes that bring them forth and continually influence how they are seen.

Call for presentations

Within the conference series CLOSE ENCOUNTERS, the Circus Department at the School of Dance and Circus, part of Stockholm University of the Arts (Uniarts), Sweden, invites you to send proposals for the second conference of Circus Arts Research and Development.

CARD2– Circus Arts Research Development – Circus on the Edge

A conference with lectures, workshops, performances, films and interventions in Stockholm, Sweden, December 9th to 11th 2015

Purpose

The purpose of the conference is to create a meeting place for international researchers to introduce and share their research, to discuss, demonstrate and provoke, to agree and find collaborators, critical allies and opponents. Furthermore, to illuminate how circus practice has developed and how the field of artistic research differs from research for production.

Background

The first CARD was launched by the University of Dance and Circus as a part of the work to demystify artistic research in circus. Since then the first artistic PhD in circus has been awarded, another is underway, post-doctoral research has commenced and ongoing artistic research is producing new knowledge and opening up new critical vistas for the form. In tandem to this development, the will to reassess, research and develop circus practice in the professional sector has grown. There is a recognized need to exchange ideas within the field of circus in order to promote the research basis for circus.

The conference will be held in English. Up to date information will be posted here.

CARPA4



Tags: , , ,

The Performing Arts Research Centre (Tutke) at the Theatre Academy, University of the Arts Helsinki welcomes artistic researchers at doctoral and post-doctoral levels to take part in the fourth biannual colloquium on artistic research in performing arts:

The Non-Human and the Inhuman in Performing Arts: Bodies, Organisms and Objects in Conflict

11th – 13th of June 2015

CARPA4 reflects on performing practices from the point of view of their non-human factors. We ask:

  • Whether performance is no longer considered a typically human behavior, expressing and reflecting the intentions and needs of human beings, but rather a point of encounter and a collaborative relation between heterogeneous elements, components or materials, like bodies, organisms and objects.
  • How can human performers find their place within performative arrangements, where the logic no longer serves human purposes?
  • What to do with bodies that no longer are “mine” or “living”?
  • In which ways can different life forms in their wide diversity enter the scene of performing arts and deconstruct this scene?
  • What kind of objects does a performance consist of? How can a performance create, liberate, or reunite objects, beyond “object theatre”?
  • How is the question of the inhuman defined and resolved in each case?

The colloquium approaches its topic area without specific disciplinary framings, collaboratively, and performatively, in an attempt to support the fruitful meeting of various points of view. It seeks common points of contact, resonating surfaces, and rhythmic interference between its heterogeneous but constituent parts.

Events will be held at Theatre Academy Helsinki, Finland

The 1st PARSE biennial research conference on TIME.

wpid-parse.png

The first biennial PARSE conference at the Faculty of Fine, Applied and Performing Arts, University of Gothenburg, Sweden (November 5 and 6, 2015) takes as its point of departure the question of TIME. Contributions are invited in the form of papers, presentations, artistic interventions, readings, panels, performances, public actions, screenings and workshops. We are especially interested in contributions that critically reflect upon, and/or in someway work to modifythe familiar conventions of the academic paper, the panel discussion and the artist’s talk. The deadline for proposals is 1st March 2015, however, we are accepting proposals for peer review from July 1st 2014, and we recommend early submission.

mit

MIT presented an interesting conference a couple of weeks ago relating to artistic research and with interest to anyone thinking about archiving:

“On November 14 and 15, MIT will host Infinite Record: Archive, Memory, Performance, an international artistic research project led by Østfold University College/Norwegian Theatre Academy. The project is done in collaboration with York St. John University in U.K, Muthesius Kunsthochschule in Germany, and MIT, which was chosen to host the final installment of the series. This will be one of the most significant events for MIT’s arts community, as it will bring some of the most prominent international artists on campus and expose research in performance arts to the student population.”

transvaluation

Call for abstracts

In the current measurement- and indicator-driven knowledge culture, research in architecture, art and several disciplines within humanities and social sciences may succumb to economic or scientific models, or be separated from important contexts of invention, risking to reduce research largely to standardized reproduction. Responding to the current proliferation of evaluation systems and the dominant culture of measurement that comes with it, the Transvaluation international symposium, May 21-22 2015, searches for alternative, cooperative environments of knowledge, of creation and invention, of ‘making and thinking’, and ways to trans- and re-value research cultures from within.

The ambition is a high quality event with top level keynote speeches, small format seminars and collective forum discussions, with the intent to start a broad debate addressing fundamental strategic research questions across disciplinary borders, and to instigate possibilities for change.

The symposium will focus two major themes, Poetics and Politics of Value, referring to the (re-)making of values, both in artistic and architectural practice and in human scientific research, and their related political and systemic aspects. These themes are examined through two conceptual lenses: Worlding (shaping the world, transforming matter) and U-topos (space for speculative thinking and making).

We now invite researchers, doctoral students and practitioners to submit abstracts for discussion at the symposium. Abstracts will be peer reviewed and, if selected, developed into short papers.

For specific questions send email to conference mail address.

tacit or loud 28 nov – 3 dec 2014 (1 hp)



Tags:

This course will adress artistic method and artistic knowledge production in a cross disciplinary manner. The participants will be encouraged to engage in the discussion concerning the locality of knowledge in artistic practice, primarily in the performing arts at the intersection between new currents in research on human cognition and new media; cross-disciplinary art is an emerging field. The course consists of at least three days of participation in the symposium Tacit or Loud: where is the knowledge in art? that takes place in Malmö 28 November 28 – 3 December 2014. It will present a series of installations and performances bringing choreography, theatre, music and fine arts together. Please contact Emma Kihl (emma@konstnarligaforskarskolan.se) for signing up or for further questions.
