February 26 and 27 a new performance by Mette Ingvartsen has it’s premiere at Kaiitheater in Brussels, being part of the programme of Festival Performatik. All the way out there...created by Mette Ingvartsen and Guillem Mont de Palol is a performance of extremes’. They present two figures in search of intense physical expression, from stillness and silence to speed and ecstasy. Their screams are either too loud to be heard or too soft to be ignored. Human affects and emotions are transformed through repetition, variation and montage. Ingvartsen and Mont de Palol seek forms of expression on the borderline of the human and the inhuman. In their search for the ‘post-human body’ they go all the way.(picture © Ingvartsen and Mont de Palol)
The inaugural issue of Journal for Artistic Research (JAR) is now released! JAR is a new international, online, open access and peer-reviewed journal for the identification, publication and dissemination of artistic research and its methodologies.
With the aim of displaying and documenting practice in a manner that respects the artist’s modes of presentation, JAR abandons the traditional journal article format and offers its contributors a dynamic online canvas where text can be woven together with image, audio and video material. The result is a journal which provides a unique ‘reading’ experience while fulfilling the expectations of scholarly dissemination.
This issue presents work by: Bertha Bermudez, Scott deLahunta, Marijke Hoogenboom, Chris Ziegler, Frederic Bevilacqua, Sarah Fdili Alaoui, Barbara Meneses Gutierrez (from Amsterdam), Richard Blythe (Melbourne), Sher Doruff (Amsterdam), Cathy van Eck (Zürich), Mark Fleischman(Cape Town), Abhishek Hazra (Bangalore), Anders Hultqvist (Gothenburg), Daniel Kötter, Constanze Fischbeck (Berlin),Tuija Kokkonen (Helsinki), Elina Saloranta (Helsinki), Sissel Tolaas (Berlin and Otto von Busch(Gothenburg).

Within the framework of Konstnärliga forskarskolan (a national research school in the field of arts), the Royal Institute of Art advertises a new doctoral position with the theme of “urbanism”. The research programme comprises of 240 ECTS-credits and leads to the degree Doctor of Philosophy in Visual Art.
The theme of ”urbanism” is chosen in relation to the Royal Institute of Art’s engagement and cross-over areas between fine art, architecture and restoration art. Urbanism can here be understood as practical and theoretical explorations of the spatial and social structures that can be found within an urban milieu, and also those movements and constant negotiations that happen within a city or at it’s borders. Urbanism may also mean questions surrounding places that stand in a relation to a city and which are influenced by it. However, the theme should be interpreted freely and the Royal Institute of Art is not emphasising any particular artistic medium or strand of practice. It is up to the applicant to identify and formulate his/her own entry to the theme of Urbanism. The condition is that the investigation should be made from an artistic research perspective

The last application date is the 14th of March 2011, and more information on the application is found here.

The second semester meeting of Konstnärliga forskarskolan was held February 7-9 2011 in Malmö, at the Inter Arts Centre and in collaboration with the Faculty of Fine and Performing Arts at Lund university. Most of the time was dedicated at identifying and constructing themes and topics for work in smaller groups of PhD candidates in the years to come using an open space methodology, but some of the time was also dedicated to exhibitions, a performance and presentations by PhD candidates at the Malmö Art Academy.
In Evaporated Landscapes, performed at the festival Le VIVAT, Armentières, France, and by Mette Ingvartsen, choreography no longer belongs to the organization of bodies and their movements in space. Rather choreography is understood to be the relationship that operates between the ephemeral elements, as they magically float and dissolve into space. The movements that appear do not only show up in space but also within the bodies of the spectators due to the sensations and perceptions they encounter throughout the performance.
