last semester meeting Belgrade 3-6 May 2015

Tags: , , , ,

This semester meeting will organised by Ana Dzokic, Marc Neelan, Frida Hållander and Olivia Plender.
The theme will be “Institutions vs. Self-organisation and Self-institutionalisation”, and was chosen early, partly as a response to the decision of closing down of Konstnärliga forskarskolan in early autumn 2014, but also by its congeniality both to self-organisation as an historical land-mark of the particular strand of socialism in former Yugoslavia, and to the many forms of self-organisation necessary for artists, cultural producers and NGOs in in the political and economical conditions of contemporary Serbia – very different to the Swedish art and research context with long-established institutions.
The semester meeting will take on the format of several joint and parallel “walking seminars” throughout the city, thematically organised and guided by knowledgeable artists, theorists and activists. Joint dinners and breakfasts will be used as informal spaces for sharing insights and discussions. More information on the meeting can be found here.
Please contact Emma Kihl (emma@konstnarligaforskarskolan.se) for signing up or for further questions.

semester meeting 23-25/9

Tags: ,

The up coming semester meeting is organized by PhD-students Marjan Kooroshina and Stefanie Malmgreen de Oliveira. The meeting is structured as an open, collective workshop around textile and dress with different focal points.

One part of the workshop explores the relationship between music and textile through techniques of knitting. Through the programming of a knitting machine, music compositions can direct the knitting patterns based on notes and movement. Another possibility for the exploration of textile and music is the creation of sound making textiles. By the use of, for example, conductive yarn, a connection to a lili-pad can be created, which can then be used to create sound and further to experiment with compositions of sound. This part is held by Jussi Mikkonen and Marjan Kooroshnia.

An other part aims to explore/question/rethink definitions of dress and dance and their relations to body, movement and space. Experimenting with different types of “garment” to find different ways of performing and wearing. This part is held by Ulrik Martin Larsen and Stefanie Malmgreen de Oliveira.

The meeting is held at the Swedish School of Textiles, University of Borås.

semester meeting 24 – 26 september 2012

TAGS: None

The semester meeting fall 2012 will take place in Stockholm and is organized by Petra Bauer, Simon Goldin, Janna Holmstedt, Mette Ingvartsen & Elke Marhöfer. The core of the meeting consists of two parallel workshops, signed up for in advance.
One workshop is a “double bill” and will be hosted by literary researcher Christina Kullberg together with choreographers Stina Nyberg, Uri Turkenich and Halla Ólafsdóttir . Two different strands of thinking will be introduced, which both focuses on how to speak through one’s practice, each taking the work of Caribbean poet and philosopher Edouard Glissant as point of departure. Read more about the workshop and required preparations here.
The other workshop, led by artist Natascha Sadr Haghighian, will discuss approaches to knowledge and sovereignity that are tied to experience, to fieldwork beyond the factual and are based on a substantial doubt in the established knowledge categories and the institutions that produce and regulate knowledge and above all a substantial doubt in the construction of the real. Read Natascha’s introduction and required preparations here. The semester meeting will start with joint events introducing the workshops, and end with a joint gathering.

The full description of the theme and a schedule can be downloaded here. During the semester meeting the participants will also partake in an Artlab evening at Atalante, featuring Nils Claesson and Elisabet Yanagisawa Avén (both recent PhD candidates in Konstnärliga forskarskolan) in a conversation with Ole Lutzow Holm, as well as in the 75 % seminar of composer Sten Sandell at the Faculty of Fine, Applied and Performing arts at the University of Gothenburg.
