Issues on the agenda were amongst other things the appointment of two PhD members (Anna Einarsson and Frida Hållander) and and yet another deputy member of the board (Linda Worbin from the University of Borås), as well as of quality advisory board (Henk Borgdorff, Suzan Kozel and Pavel Büchler), responsibilites and tasks of the director and the english translation of the degree “konstnärlig doktorsexamen”. There was also a discussion on the possibility of gathering the librarians of the participating institutions in order to facilitate networking on the issue of support for postgraduate education in the area of artistic research, and a discussion on the importance of international networking for Konstnärliga forskarskolan in general.
Between January 21 and 30, The harsh notes (De stränga anteckningarna) is performed at the Inter Arts Center at Bergsgatan 29 in Malmö, in a Teatr Weimar production. The harsh notes is an installation for two actors, four singers, electroacoustic music, paintings and installations: displaying a frozen war zone with an omnipresent death, where myths are ongoing stories about the conditions we live by today. The text is written by Jörgen Dahlqvist and the music is composed by Kent Olofsson, with Sara Wilén as one of the singers.
Thursday January 20 2011, between 1 – 5pm there is a lecture entitled “Showing showing: archival pratices and immaterial work” at the Valand School of Fine Arts, University of Gothenburg. Beatrice von Bismarck (Leipzig/Berlin), art historian, curator and director of the new Masters Programme, Cultures of the Curatorial, at the Academy of Visual Arts in Leipzig, will lecture on how artists have been working with archive material and “immateriality” since the 1960s. How can the tension between material and immaterial cultural heritage be considered in relation to, for example, the movement of Conceptual art away from the object and the permanent, towards what the curator and writer Lucy Lippard at the end of the 1960s called “the dematerialization of the art object”? The lecture is the second of three events on “Performing the curatorial” curated by Maria Lind under the aegis of the Cultural Heritage seminars at the University of Gothenburg, a gathering point for the critical scholarly examination of and artistic perspectives on questions of cultural heritage.
